This sea stack is a popular climbing destination in Scotland and situated on the Orkney Islands with the height of 449ft. This is the tallest stack in Britain. The stack is separated from the sea side cliffs and it is created by erosion of cliff through hydraulic action. This stack got its name because in some angles it looks like an old man. It is believed that it is 250 years old and in the position that it may soon fall into the sea. Highline walk is also a popular activity you can enjoy here.
