Much easier getting off the ship, we took the coach trip to see the Churchill Barriers in Scapa Flow and the Italian Cathedral. The landscape in Orkney is more agricultural, with very few trees, but the historical aspects made up for the scenery. ...

If the rain had let up some, it would have been more fun. Later we had some time in the coastal village of Stromness which was very exposed to the sea but had grown and established itself as a port city for ...
