Quiet, remote, windswept and stark but indubitably prepossessing. This ancient island tenuously linked to the mainland, sometimes, is a haven from the world, at least until tourists flock like ravenous vultures.

The castle was sadly under wraps. However the sheep were welcoming and the remains of the old priory were beautiful. The true wonder of Lindisfarne is its bracing bleakness. Just remember to check the table of tides before venturing out or back.
