... Orkney Islands, a naval harbour in WW 2. Drove across the northern coast of Scotland westwards, with scenery becoming more rugged and mountainous. Cannot believe our luck with sunny, dry and slightly windy weather after numerous predictions of rain. Drove round the edge of Loch Eriboll, one of the deepest lochs in Scotland at 60 metres depth. On to Smoo Cave. A huge sea cave that you can enter from ...
The Rose B&B , Lochinver. Weather overcast, occasional sun, occasional shower Up at 4:45am to catch the 6:30am ferry from Stromness, a 30 minute drive from Kirkwall. Had breakfast on the ferry.

They them came round the dining room with the leftover Yorkshires! The Steak Pie actually had meat and ...
... the estate manager came up behind us in his 4x4. Thankfully he was not about to kick us off but to offer us the use of a derelict cottage. However it was at least another three miles on, so with his blessing we have found a pitch up above the loch, not o'er flat but it is out of the worst of the wind. Great view too.
Quick pasta supper and Rob's already asleep. However, tomorrow hopefully should be a short (16 mile) day to Crask Inn. There awaits a pint with my name on ...
