A Lighthouse of Scotland

SC 25 Stroma
latitude 58° 41' 44.9" N
longitude 3° 7' 0.1" W

Off the Northern-most point of Stroma, is the Swilkie, the most dangerous whirlpool in the Pentland Firth, occasioned by the meeting of four or five contrary tides. According to Icelandic legend, the Swilkie is the place where the salt which maintains the saltiness of the oceans is ground in a giant quern, stolen from King Frodi by a sea-king named Mysing.
