To the best of my knowledge this granite rock on St Agnes in the Isles of Scilly has no local name, but when I first saw it it became the ‘Mysterious Feline’, and so it has remained. I apologise for the quality of the image – it was edited during the first wave of enthusiasm after I acquired Photoshop 7. But I still feel the grittiness enhances the character. Maybe that’s just an excuse!
