Snow!

It’s that time of year again. When beloved and I take off baby’s hard top and head out on our holidays. This year we decided to return to the Orkney Isles that we visited four years ago and vowed we would return to.

So, return we have done, Last time we stayed on South Ronaldsay, at the bottom right of the mainland and connected isles. So we headed off to Birsay this time, at the top left corner.

The weather was not the best… 26 MPH winds battered the ferry as we crossed the Pentland Firth, and we landed on Orkney to be greeted with…

Snow

I’m dreaming of a white Orkney, just like the ones I used to know

Having found and settled into our cottage the weather had brightened somewhat, and the wind dropped so we headed off for an evening drive and explore of the Northern coast road

Stopping off a while at the quiet and peaceful Aikaster Beach, to survey the scenery

Peek-a-boo

Where we chanced upon this rare creature, the Orkney vole, can you see him?

A Seal!

Oh, and we saw a seal.
