    ... each year on average and hurricane force winds can happen any time of year. Like Iceland, Orkney was once heavily forested but human activity changed that over the millennia.

    Orkney and Shetland have only weak links to Scotland, having been part of Norway until the late 1400s when they passed to the Scottish king as a kind of dowry for marrying the Norsky king’s daughter. Orkney voted strongly against independence in last year’s Scottish referendum and has ...

    ... before being moved. Walking on along the long, telegraph lined road I enjoyed the delicate, sweet perfume given off by flocks growing wild along the roadside and thought of all the wonderful flowers and trees I had passed by along the way.
