The Knee (mini stack)
And the great thing about Duncansby Head is its scenic drama - a fitting headland for most north-easterly point on the British mainland.
At the Geo of Sclaites:
Beyond the geo the cliffs march south towards Freswick and the impressive Stacks of Duncansby appear. These sea-stacks are 60m high and were first climbed in 1958. They are less famous than the 137m high Old Man of Hoy but are probably seen by more tourists.
