    ... early in the morning, we were arriving at Lerwick. As it was raining, I decided to stay aboard for a while. I had a wash in one of the unisex shower rooms (sink only of course) and got my backpack ready for a day's exploring in Lerwick. As I stepped off the ferry, I really felt a sense of achievement arriving here without many problems. Yes there have been moment of uncertainty, moments where one doubts the reasons for leaving the ...

    At least we are a little further north than last year! Over the summer and winter months, the EZ has been treated to a fuel injection system and electrical and radio upgrades. Only a short sentence but a long time to achieve! With the plane performing well, we felt able to restart last year's aborted trip.

I wasn't sure what to expect, since I have only ever been ...

    ... We did our names in runes, among other things. Really interesting museum. Found out a lot more about the game of Ba' that they play every Christmas and New Year's Days. They have teams (Uppies and Downies - depends on where you were born) who try to get the leather ball to the water at their goal (have to go all through town first - ball is thrown in the air ...

    ... We hadn't planned to do it, but if we wanted to get to the Brough, it would seem we were going to. It was lovely, and a complete change from our earlier walk, along a rutted ditrt road and then the beach... and onto the tar road that we should have been on, with a car park right outside the Brough.

    The Brough of Gurness is probably one of my favourite places on Orkney - I felt it left Skara Brae in the shade. It was much better preserved, less visited (we ...
