Anyway, Wen was wrong…
It’s not a ‘reckie’ we’re on, it’s a raid!
But before we can ‘plunder’ Lewis
of her treasury of stone,
we have to get past the Dweller…
There is some debate over what the name actually represents
but there is no doubt about the name.
The Old Man of Storr…
Some say it refers to the outline of the rock face,
others that it is the pinnacle itself,
which from one angle also possesses face-like features.
Still others claim the pinnacle is a giant’s thumb,
and that when the land mass slid…
it buried the giant beneath an ancient rock fall.
Whatever it is we know what it does;
it sucks clouds from the sky
and pours them down on the Isle as rain.
It seems to be doing this with extreme prejudice
just about now
which makes me think that
maybe the Old Man ‘has got wind’
of our intended raid…
