    ... shows what the homes would have been like. There is good access to the ancient site which is open to the elements (it probably needs covering to protect it). There were other ancient relics, the Ring of Brodgar and the Stenness Stones, and a tomb that had been plundered by Vikings.

    ... went in and had the interview. I thought it was went well and they said they would let me know before the end of the day. I didn't hear anything and I was pretty disappointed about it, but thought "oh well I'll find something." Then on Thursday around dinner time I got a call saying I had gotten the position.

    ... to make an informed decision about routing. Not dissatisfied with the quality of this position, Captain Wylie went one better. He arranged for the ferry to drop us off at the southern end of Westray, from whence one of his staff (Malcolm) picked us up by car and ran us up to Pierowall, where another member of his local staff, ferry captain Tom, took us in his personal boat (a beautifully maintained 60-year old clinker-built launch) across to Papa Westray.
