Off to Orkney (via Kinlochbervie) Hooray!!!

This will be my last post for at least 10 days as we are off on our hols tomorrow morning leaving the house and cats in the capable hands of my eldest daughter.

First we will be spending two nights at The Old School House in Kinlochbervie.
Kinlochbervie is in the far north west of Scotland. We spent three nights in Kinlochbervie at the Old School House last year when we toured Scotland on Dave's Harley & loved it so much we decided to return again this year.

On Saturday we will get the ferry from Gills Bay to St Margaret's Hope on South Ronaldsay then drive over the Churchill Barriers to Mainland and on to Stromness where we will be staying in The Peedie Hoose (Peedie apparently means small).

The Churchill Barriers are a series of four causeways which link the Orkney Mainland in the north to the island of South Ronaldsay via Burray and the two smaller islands of Lamb Holm and Glimps Holm. The barriers were built in the 1940s as naval defences to protect the anchorage at Scapa Flow, but now serve as road links.

I am starting to get all excited so I have been looking back at some photos which we took when we visited Orkney three years ago - I thought I'd share one or two with you.

Bye for now xxx
