Summit, Flotta, Orkney

This is the highest point on the island of Flotta. This is a good location for a wind turbine since the land is low lying around here and the wind is predicatable and smooth.

The Vikings named this island as "Flat island". Hoy to the west was "High island". I can see their point about Hoy, it has the highest hills on Orkney. On the other hand this point is 183 feet up, this is not a huge hill to climb but by the time you have walked here from the pier you begin to wish you could explain to this Viking the meaning of the word "Flat".
