Old Man of Hoy is generally recognised as Scotland's best-known sea stack, but the Old Man
of Stoer, tucked away in the western cliffs of the Stoer Peninsula in Sutherland, is more
easily accessible. A breathtaking view down to the Old Man from the mainland cliffs can be
reached by a fine walk across the Stoer Peninsula. The Old Man was first climbed by the
late Tom Patey in 1967.
