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.

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 ...
