Waiting for the ferry, hood up incase things got a little rough, needn't have worried, flat calm and wall to wall sunshine for the entire one hour crossing. I'll post more pics if this is successful.

Typical, I couldn't get the pic to attach, now it's there twice 🤣

Proof that it was a smooth crossing!

And Hoxa beach, our first stop, picnic lunch on the beach. Unbelievable weather for Orkney. Let's hope it lasts!
Good b&b in Kirkwall as well. The owner has requested a spin in the Morgan, coolest car he's ever had in the car park he said 👍

Great to see you getting cracking weather ... a run across to Orkney is one of the first trips slated for the Morgan .... spent plenty of time in Shetland but only bounced off Orkney a couple of times on the way there ... deserves a proper trip!!

Enjoy your time there and keep the pics coming 👍

Perfectly normal weather for the north of Scotland laugh
I'm another one that has spent lots of time in Shetland but have only really passed through Orkney even when technically I've been working there in the Flotta oil terminal. Enjoy it, from what I've seen from the edges it's a great place.

Another day of typical Orkney weather today 😁
First up St Magnus cathedral

And an alternative view of the Italian chapel, sure you all know what the other end looks like.

A trip East to Mull Head visitor centre and a 3½ mile clifftop hike with some spectacular views and rock formations.

Dave, a work colleague told me about this. When I asked Mrs D last night what to see today she suggested we go and see "Dave's hole" so here it is. Otherwise known as The Gloup.

And a wee renovation project just off Inganess beach.

Great pictures Gordon, thanks for sharing them.

One year we were visiting they had Songs of Praise held in St Magnus and the security was as tight as anything I ever saw in Northern Ireland back in the bad old days.

Fabulous building though.

I’ve been to Orkney a number of times and I have to be honest I never seen the back end of the Italian Chapel before. Keep your eyes open for a white/cream Mog of a local resident. A lovely place to visit.

We move on to Stromness today and it's a cruise ship free day so we've booked Skara Brae.
