Scotland Road Trip – Day 12

Up for an early breakfast today as we had to travel back to John O’Groats to catch the ferry to Orkney. We have booked on a coach day tour which took us to all the main tourist spots on the islands.


First stop was Kirkwall, the capital. Only an hour of spare time so we had a cup of tea & a scone, quick look around the cathedral, bought some lunch 🙂


Next stop was Skara Brae (another hour stop), which is a village built in 3100BC before the pyramids & Stonehenge! It was very interesting to see how things were built with just stone.


From then we stopped at Ring of Brodgar, Standing Stones of Stenness and the Italian Chapel before heading back to the ferry for the trip back home.  I very much enjoyed my ‘peedie’ tour of the Orkney Isles, there is so much to see and do, much more than we did today.  Maybe worth a trip back some time.
