    Go East

    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.

    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!

I went back to my room after a brekky of veggie sausages, tomatoes, scrambled egg and mushrooms. There was tea, toast and a ...

    ... the middle of nowhere with no other traffic in sight we manage to get a red light.

    Luckily we awoke to a much better day than yesterday and the sun was shining down making everything more vibrant after the rain.

    The drive north was filled with beautiful scenery of little towns and picturesque countryside. Apart for a stop for fuel and another one in Wick for the automatic teller we made it to John O'Groats in good time.

    Not a lot here, apart from ...

    From the Castle of Mey to Orkney

    ... Mother’s day – including her gum boots by the front entrance way – these were specially adapted for her and had sprigs on the heels. The castle is not overly warm and only the bottom floor had central heating, and we were told that hot water bottles were essential for guests to use. The dining table was set for a dinner party – all of the guests had two wine glasses, for white and red wine, but ...
