Isle of Eigg Sunset

Eigg is one of the Small Isles, in the Scottish Inner Hebrides. It lies to the south of the Skye and to the north of the Ardnamurchan peninsula. Eigg is 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) long from north to south, and 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) east to west. With an area of 12 square miles (31 km2), it is the second largest of the Small Isles after Rùm. The main settlement on Eigg is Cleadale, a fertile coastal plain in the north west. It is known for its quartz beach, called the "singing sands" on account of the squeaking noise it makes if walked on when dry. The centre of the island is a moorland plateau, rising to 393 metres. Walkers who complete the easy scramble to the top in good weather are rewarded with spectacular views all round of Mull, Coll, Muck, the Outer Hebrides, Rùm, Skye, and the mountains of Lochaber on the mainland.

 
Isle of Wight - Tending the Flock

Isle of Wight - Tending the Flock

SOLD - This is a typical winter scene that could be seen on the hills of the Isle of Wight many years ago. The sheep that were used to perform the task of fertilising the uplands before the advent of fertilizer. These sheep were not allowed to roam free but were kept tightly enclosed behind hurdles. Once the forage crop or grassland had been grazed, the hurdles and flock would be moved on to new pasture, leaving behind manure that would be ploughed in ready for a crop of wheat, barley or oats. Without this organic fertiliser, it would not have been possible to grow these crops in light soils. The shepherd's hut was a kitchen, dining room, bedroom, sitting room and storeroom all rolled into one. The designs vary but all were constructed to provide the shepherd with practical and durable accommodation. The old huts had a stove in one corner for warmth and cooking, and a window on each side so the shepherd could see the flock. A hinged stable door, which was always positioned away from the prevailing wind, enabled him to hear the flock, and strong axles with cast iron wheels were used to withstand the constant movement from field to field. The durability of these huts is evident today with many fine examples still being used by farmers, mainly as storerooms, and can often be seen parked up alongside fields. Many more have been consigned to agricultural museums giving testament to days gone by.

 
Istanbul

Istanbul

FOR SALE -- Istanbul is Turkey's most populous city as well as its cultural and financial hub. Located on both sides of the Bosphorus, the narrow strait between the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea. Founded on the Sarayburnu promontory around 660 BC as Byzantium, the city now known as Istanbul developed to become one of the most significant cities in history. For nearly sixteen centuries following its reestablishment as Constantinople in 330 AD, it served as the capital of four empires: the Roman Empire (330–395), the Byzantine Empire (395–1204 and 1261–1453), the Latin Empire (1204–1261), and the Ottoman Empire (1453–1922). It was instrumental in the advancement of Christianity during Roman and Byzantine times, before the Ottomans conquered the city in 1453 and transformed it into an Islamic stronghold and the seat of the last caliphate. Istanbul's strategic position along the historic Silk Road, rail networks to Europe and the Middle East, and the only sea route between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean have helped foster an eclectic populace, although less so since the establishment of the Republic in 1923. Overlooked for the new capital during the interwar period, the city has since regained much of its prominence. The population of the city has increased tenfold since the 1950s, as migrants from across Anatolia have flocked to the metropolis and city limits have expanded to accommodate them.

London Millwall Docks

London Millwall Docks

FOR SALE The Millwall Docks are at the heart of the Isle of Dogs, the peninsula formed by the great east London oxbow in the Thames. They are now within the London Docklands Development Corporation's Enterprise Zone and, over the past few years, have been the scene of frantic building activity. There is scarcely a single structure of pre-Thatcherian vintage on the quays of the Millwall Docks, but the docks themselves, survive largely as built. The story of the construction of these docks lies very much in the fearful gap between a developer's vision and its successful realisation. Conceived in the early 1860s, a time of great economic confidence, the Millwall Docks were completed in 1868 following a hard fought battle through an unpromising flotation and the disastrous Crash of 1866.

Lulworth Cove

Lulworth Cove

Lulworth Cove is a cove near the village of West Lulworth, on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site in Dorset, southern England. The cove is one of the world's finest examples of such a landform, and is a tourist location with approximately 500,000 visitors a year. The cove has formed because there are bands of rock of alternating resistance running parallel to the shore (a concordant coastline). The seaward side the clays and sands have been eroded away. Forming the back of the cove is a 250 metre wide band of chalk, which is considerably more resistant than the clays and sands, but less resistant than the limestones. The entrance to the cove is a narrow gap in the limestone bands. This was formed by a combination of erosional processes by wave action and the processes of weathering. The wide part of the cove is where the weak clays and greensands have been eroded. The back of the cove is the chalk, which the sea has been unable to erode as fast as it does not dissolve in the sea acids. The unique shape of the cove is a result of wave diffraction. The narrow entrance to the cove ensures that as waves enter they bend into an arced shape.

 
Lyme Regis Harbour (2)

Lyme Regis Harbour (2)

FOR SALE - Lyme Regis is a coastal town in West Dorset, England. The town lies in Lyme Bay, on the English Channel coast at the Dorset–Devon border. It is nicknamed "The Pearl of Dorset." The town is noted for the fossils found in the cliffs and beaches, which are part of the Heritage Coast—known commercially as the Jurassic Coast—a World Heritage Site. The harbour wall, known as "The Cobb", features in Jane Austen's novel Persuasion, and in The French Lieutenant's Woman, a novel by British writer John Fowles, as well as the 1981 film of the same name, which was partly filmed in Lyme Regis. Lyme Regis is located on an exposed part of the shoreline, where there is no natural harbour and manmade structures are necessary to provide both a boat haven and protection from storms. The Cobb is the town’s jetty that extends into the sea, providing both harbor and defense. It dates at least to the 13th century, has been destroyed by storms and rebuilt numerous times. Without The Cobb, there would be no town.
