- Aye: though we hunted high and low,
- And hunted everywhere,
- Of the three men's fate we found no trace
- Of any kind in any place,
- But a door ajar, and an untouch'd meal,
- And an overtoppled chair.
- (TV: Horror of Fang Rock)
Behind the scenes Edit
In the real world the poem is known simply as Flannan Isle and deals with a mysterious incident that occurred on the Flannan Isles in 1900, when three lighthouse-keepers disappeared without explanation. The parallelism with the incident of Fang Rock is clear.
