Scottish primrose

Unique to parts of the Orkney Isles, Caithness and North Sutherland, I finally got my first sighting of Primula Scotica, the Scottish primrose, on the cliffs at Yesnaby near Skara Brae. It flowers once in spring and once in summer and small clumps of it were flowering on consecutive trips to Orkney in July and early August.
