Woollie Wanderings

I lost track of time and I went on holiday.....sorry for the lack of posts!

I have been looking forward to a week in Orkney with my friends from National Trust since last July when the idea was first mooted.....and it didn't disappoint. I have never been the Orkney Islands before. A group of islands that lies just off the north coast of Scotland and now I have been I am sure that I will return again to explore a little more. And to post a little more about them! There's much to tell, from it's Neolothic history to contemporary craft, from beaches to cliffs, from birds to seals......Until then, a few photos......

Looking forward to hearing more! Lovely photos. I'm sure having companions with the National Trust makes for interesting travels.

Looks absolutely lovely! Please show us some more pics.
I love the small islands around the world, and I know I would love to visit Orkney at one point in my life.
