Daft Ann’s Steps
Daft Ann’s Steps are a series of rocky outcrops projecting from the south of Hestan Island and are permanently submerged at low water.

They get their name from a local tale, in which a local girl from the village of Auchencairn tried to make the crossing from the mainland direct to the south end of the island at low tide, instead of taking the far longer (but safer) route via the north end of the island. However, this supposed short cut was not to pay off, for the girl drowned, and hence the name ‘Daft Ann’s Steps’.
