We are now confirmed 15th August onwards booked in a cottage near Evie. I have booked the ferry as well via Pentland Ferries as usual but due to a quirk in their charges it is very expensive. We may be cancelling and going with Northlink depending on the response tomorrow as Northlink are much much cheaper than the £314 for the boat, car and two folk that Pentland want. I am surprised at this as Pentland are usually cheaper but they say the boat trailer at over 7m long is a commercial trailer and have charged accordingly
Oh, and the cat that was supposed to be in service last year when we went across in June is still not in service!
So thats the plan, going up and across 15th Aug, staying near Evie and going out to the islands launching from Tingwall, maybe doing the odd dive, visiting various islands and sites, having one day trip round Hoy to see the Old man and visit Flotta etc at some point during the week.
Thats the basic plan for thise interested still to be fleshed out either by just us or whoever else is coming as well.
