Out Skerries?


Katharine Tree

My WIP involves two characters who spent a year on Scotland's Out Skerries. It isn't a large, involved part of the story, but I'd like the details I do include to be authentic.

Has anyone been to them? Any observations about everyday life, infrastructure, nature of the permanent residents? The smell of the wind? The sounds of the sea?

Observations about other remote North Sea islands would be fine, too. I'll take what I can get.
