|Emma and Mike at Brodgar|
This stone is part of the famous stone ring of Brodgar. It had been damaged and split by being struck by lightening. Here is Tim, our own (visiting) Professor of civil engineering, testing the stability of the damaged structure in traditional fashion.
|Three of the six Ts|
'You can't get to heaven in an old Ford car' but we ran into this group of 6 ancient Model Ts and their enthusiastic owners. The youngest car was built in 1928, the owners mostly not too far behind. The cars were over from Scotland touring Orkney and seemed to be well cared for and in excellent condition.
After a couple of days on these lovely island we are now hoping for northerly winds to keep us clear of the dreaded Pentland Firth.
