Last trip of the summer probably. We had hoped to go the Shetlands but the travel content of the journey is too much. Another evening departure from here put us into Tain for the night before onto the ferry the next day. The Orkneys are a bit different, full of history both recent and ancient.

Today was the start of my volunteering, and it was fabulous. I got to see my first C-section, a couple of sick calves, and a very old collie.
