    What an amazing place. Travelled by passenger ferry from John O'Groats over to one of the Orkney Islands. Remote and wind swept they were a base for the British army in both world wars.Italian POW's built the chapel we visited and used bandages and paper to plaster the walls of the Nissan hut to make it look like a church.

    ... had to wash our hands iwith avgas. It was quite humorous "washing" our hands underneath the fuel drains of the other planes in there. At some point Andrew just took off without saying a peep, so Johannes and I were left to the task of learning by doing. It's not rocket science, but we wanted to make sure we had everything put back together properly. Maggie's cowling didn't fly off en route to Iceland, so we did something right ;-) A walk through the extremely windy town of Wick on ...

    ... to stop walking despite the intermittent rain. I was booked into a B&B at John O' Groats. If I went any further would I just have to retrace my steps later in the afternoon, and again in the morning? Fortunately I'd picked up a bus timetable for buses between John O' Groats and Thurso which indicated that I could get back to JoG at about 4.15pm. I decided to press on.
