    After a busy neolithic day yesterday, I spent my last day in the beautiful Orkney Islands going East. It's a bit difficult to say it was really east because the island is only about 80 klms long from top to bottom. Today I made my way back through Kirkwall and headed south on the road to the Tomb of the Eagles. I really had no idea what this was except that it was neolithic (what a surprise!) and had been accidentally found by the farmer who was looking for some field stones to build ...

    What an interesting day. I had porridge, salmon, poached eggs, toast and tea. Feeling very full but knowing this was my only meal today I wobbled out to the car for the early morning trip to Skara Brae. This village is the most complete neolithic settlement in Europe today. It is older than the Pyramids and Stonehenge. Dates are between 3100BC - 2500BC. This makes the settlement 5000 years old! I'm really young! :) The inhabitants seem to have ...

    After an early morning to pack up all my rubbish, I headed down to the breakfast place with computer in tow to check emails etc. This hotel really needs to do something about its internet access! Most of the crew arrived right on 7:30 as we had to get onto the bus this morning and check out of this beautiful hotel. I went back to my room after a brekky of veggie sausages, tomatoes, scrambled egg and mushrooms. There was tea, toast and a ...

    We awoke this morning to a bright day with a little fog on the horizon and a flat calm North Sea. It looked as though it was going to be another fine day today. We were due to arrive in Kirkwall, Orkney at around mid-day.

    We went along to the buffet restaurant for our breakfast, and took it out to the deck at the stern to eat outside. There were quite a lot of people out there already, no doubt to make the most of the sunshine. We took a walk ...
