Flying high over Kirkwall this morning, a very large kite flying very high over Bignold park.
Not all wonders of Orkney are big and exciting. Here we see the tiny, yet perfectly formed flowers of the Scottish Primrose, still in flower but most of the plants now on seed. Well worth finding if you visit Orkney.
If you are thinking of doing this tour, think no more. Do it!!!! This was my retirement gift to me. We had been to the Orkneys before and didn’t want to be cattle marketed around tourist sites on mass.John took us where ever we wanted and more. (Things we didn’t realise we wanted were included). You asked him something and he rode with it. We even found the rare Scottish Primrose flower 😆.
His enthusiasm for archeology was evident.
You are the centre of attention though, everyone stares. I loved it, felt like a Queen for the day!
Do take warm clothing. It was a hot day when we went and I nearly didn’t bring my jacket and scarf, it is a bit breezy on the back so pleased I wrapped up!
We were picked up and dropped off at the cruise port. No messing. Communication was great.
Here is the illusive Primula Scotica for those who have never seen one.
