By the sea in Orkney

Hi All from Orkney

Pic 1 The buildings you can see in the mid-ground our ours (as is Hamish the horse)

Pic 2 - Our community multi-level slip is 5 mins drive away (20 per year to use)

Pic 3 the usually empty beach 5 mins walk from home.

Located here:
Streetmap.co.uk - Search results

Can't imagine why I moved here and spent 175,000 on a detached house with barn, stables and 20 acres of land...

Cheers

Steve

Trying to sort an aquatic big adventure out for next year would be great to see the blackfish

Thanks - it is lovely although even better if I didn't need to work. Very hard to stay in the office when it's a great day for ribbing outside. That said, the weather here is more challenging than the Solent or Dorset to say the least, though I'm happy to put up with that for all the positives about Orkney. Steve
