Orkney Islands

... the hotel at 6:45 and dinner was at 7:15. Jean quickly took a shower to warm up. I closed the window and turned on the heat. We then went to dinner. We sat with Butch and Linda again. We talked about various hotel/B&B experiences among other things. Dinner for me was a prawn salad, salmon with potato and veggies, and cherry flan. After dinner I settled our bar tab and we returned to the room to pack for our travel day and watched the Bond movie ...

Journey to Thurso

A travel blog entry by rerowand on Aug 08, 2014

We had a late start today, 9:00. We drove about an hour to Dunrobin Castle arriving shortly after 10:00. Here we had a three hour layover, leaving at 1:15 in the afternoon. We first took a self-guided tour of the castle. This is still an active residence. The owner still has an apartment on site. Again, got to pay those taxes! The first duke of Sutherland changed everything when the Jacobites were defeated and they werey no ...

This is, however, only part of the story. Inevitably, we tended to meet local people who were in regular contact with tourists. Their awareness of their product and the need to ensure the Highlands were presented and represented well could therefore lead to a skewed impression. With a sharper focus, the other ...

... and interesting talk, well worth a donation to the upkeep in their collecting box.

It's getting late and we head towards Wick. Our last stop of the day is at Noss Head where we are able to visit the ruined Castle Sinclair Giringoe. It makes a spectacular silhouette against the blackening clouds on the horizon. A history of the castle along with sketches of how it would have looked are placed along the way. We also observe a peregrine falcon as it swoops past ...
