Second week in Kirkwall

A travel blog entry by kalie


... cool - Wyre and Rousay. It was really great too - I got to go and see the Buffalo farm they have on island! Buffalo are really nice animals - they don't spook as easily as cows, and the ones on this farm were incredibly friendly! They only move when and where they want to though - you can suggest where to go, and they will consider your opinion. The last day was quiet on the large animal side of things, ...

Day twenty - Back to mainland

It's raining again

A travel blog entry by jandmtravel


Started off a beautiful morning and I was up at 7am as it was too hot in the tent. Had a shower and then breakfast. As we were packing up the clouds came over. Drove up to John O'Groats and arrived in fog, high winds, light rain and general gloom. Had a walk around and saw a couple posing for photos with their bikes at the famous sign post - they had obviously cycled along way to get ...
