      great shots, but forgive me if I'm wrong isn't this Shivering Sands Sea Fort? As I understand it, Shivering Sands only has 6 forts left after a ship collided with 1 of them in heavy fog, DOH! Red Sands still has the original 7 standing forts. They do look very similar however!

      Hi you are correct about the ship in the fog, but it was the other way round. The photo above has one of the towers out of shot, see here www.flickr.com/photos/mrbeama/1347959722/

      Red Sands also has the viewing platform that you can see next to the boat back left.

      This is Shivering Sands - www.flickr.com/photos/mrbeama/1348042210/ you can just see the leg poking out the water of the missing one.

      Cheers :oD
