On the small Hebridean island of Eriskay, Scotland, the causeway linking it to the outside world was only completed 20 years ago. The isolation protected the Eriskay Pony, one of the UK’s oldest and rarest breeds. It was here that in 1745, Bonny Prince Charlie first set foot in Scotland to launch his uprising to retake the British throne. The image was acquired June 17, 2013, covers an area of 9.2 by 10.2 km, and is located at 57.1 degrees north, 7.3 degrees west.
