My two nights at the Strathy Inn were comfortable and relaxed. The breakfasts were thoughtfully presented. My hosts went out of their way to be helpful, checking bus timetable for me. The restaurant was obviously popular with locals and people staying at accommodation elsewhere. It offered a much more interesting range of dishes than one might expect from the usual 'bar meals.'

... partially separated living spaces, but whether they were for family groups or for important personages is not known. Neither is it known why, between about 2400 and 2200 BC, the structures were "decomissioned" and infilled with rubble and middens. Some removal of stone for other structures has been noted. But by and large the site is intact, the roofing stone has even been found lying where it had fallen when the roofs collapsed, and the strong, thick, dressed-stone walls are still ...
... back on the bus and headed all the way over to the most Western town we were visiting, Stromness. It took us about an hour and a half to drive over there. It was a little fishing town with a decent ferry port as well. We stopped here for about an hour for lunch. We also had a little bit of time walking around and even managed to try some Orkney Ice cream, even if it was probably a bit cold for it! On the way we were told a few statistics about the islands. Their average temperature ...
... for a chieftain. The cathedral itself was founded in 1137 by the Viking, Earl Rognvald, in honor of his uncle Magnus. We returned to the bus for the return to the ferry dock. We arrived and immediately boarded the ferry. The return trip on the ferry was much rougher. The waves were three to four feet high, but the weather had broken and wasn't raining anymore. However, because of the cold, most people sat on the lower deck inside. We arrived back ...
... from a remote part of the world. Tonight ceilidh dancing is on the cards, if we can brave the weather. I enjoyed yesterday's workshop and managed to pick up the steps by the end. There is so much more respect here for older people, and many of them were better dancers than the younger folk at learning the country style steps and formations. It made me think about setting up dance classes or sessions for older folk back ...
... as being well-informed, and we passed a pleasant twenty minutes or so chatting to him. Nearby is the manor house of the man who discovered Skara Brae, now also in the care of Scottish Heritage. This is preserved as it was in the 1950s and was quite interesting but not in the same league at Calke Abbey. Now it was time to get ourselves a bed for the night. We had talked about it earlier, but were so keen to see all the sights before the rain which is promised for tomorrow that ...
