A direct hit on An Garbh-eilean (Garvie Island) during a NATO exercise. 7.45km from camera. Practice bomb dropped by an F16, possibly Royal Dutch Airforce.

Congratulations on taking this opportunity, Andrew. I stayed at Durness 4 years ago and was enjoying a stroll on Faraid Head when a jet pilot singled me out for a low flying exercise! I was too busy ducking to take any photos!

Regards, Brian.
