Orkney Stories Day 2: The West Side of the Island


Up a steep hill, pursued by Belgiums (friendly) to Kitchener’s Monument at the top of the Marwick cliffs on the west side of the mainland.

Out of breath. I look east across soft greens, cattle and sheep.

And just down the road is a treasure trove of Fisherman’s huts in a secret cove.
Lobster Pots are evident. 
The is hush-hush Orkney. We mark the spot our map.


Orkney, a place for discovery, Shhhh – keep it to yourself.
