    Ancient Ruins and Cats

    Realizing we had a lot to see and do, we woke early to a nice breakfast, (lox and eggs for Avi, croissant and cheeses for me) and drove off in our Ka to book a tour for Maeshowe. Maeshowe is a chambered tomb which is only accessible by guided tour and even though we arrived at opening, the first tour available wasn't until early afternoon. Fortunately Orkney is a small island with lots to see. So, in the meantime we went to Skara Brae, a ...

    ... eggs and toast, all produced locally. Nothing like country living. Shirley got a sandwich with homemade bread slices the size of two slices of regular bread.

    Quiet day around town tomorrow – nice not to have to unpack. That was a grueling week!

    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 ...
