Wow! That really inspires the imagination! I wonder what sort of ruins they are? How old? Who was there?
As this was slowly revealing itself in my reader I thought "Wow, huge whale" LOL - is no one allowed on the island or is it just to difficult to get there. And if no one is allowed, do you know why?
I would love to go and explore, but sometimes, the only way to preserve something is to deny access. Is this the case here?
Wow, just knowing I can't visit makes me want to visit! Do you think it is closed to the public because of conservation? I'd love to see those ruins.
I imagine the only people that know anything about it would be UNESCO or some heritage community. Chances are the lack of information is meant to protect the site. I'm intrigued as well though.
We can learn so much from Google... views we never had, but I like your sea level picture too.
Too bad they won't let you get a closer look :)
I love the outta the way spots you find...gotta say I think this is the most outta the way you've presented.
According to the information I can find, the ruins include the remains of a medieval monastery and housing for Victorian quarry workers. The island is protected as a nesting site for seabirds.
