Hi Ian

Fair Isle is about 50 miles north of Kirkwall so it's not such a long jaunt.

Interesting looking place though.

Fair Isle website

How about summer 2005?

Fair Isle

Looks a bit damp there on the webcam Keith.
But a lovely looking location.

I was quite interested until I saw this on their website.......

"There are no hotels, pubs or restaurants on the island, but refreshments can usually
be obtained - ask for details on arrival."

NO PUBS! Even Lundy has apub!

Ian, I'm surprised at such a question !! You're the first one to RIB into the middle of the ocean and say "wow look at this"
