3 day shifts, a weekend away, then 3 night shifts and we are off Very Happy
Looking forward to this one, always like going up Scotland, its nice to get on quieter roads away from all the rush rush driving down here.
Just been looking into the ferries again, they don't seem to get fully booked often so we are just going to turn up and hope we can get on.

Found a lovely wild camping spot yesterday so stayed there last night, On a site in Kirkwall tonight, had a good look round the town today, will do the harbour tomorrow then we are heading up the east coast, wilding it for the next 2 nights, then maybe staying at a site near Stromness.
Was nice and warm yesterday but cloudy, one of them muggy days Sad Sky cleared about an hour before the sun went down, bit late eh!
Had a seal that kept coming for a look at us yesterday Smile wasn't far out, probably about 20-30 feet at most.
Rained heavy during the night but not had much during the day, forecast showers in the morning then supposed to pick back up again according to the local forecast.

Don't know what we are doing, no plans, just take it has it comes, just driving about exploring, if we see something interesting we'll stop, were not really into history

Just waiting for the tide to drop so I can walk over to the island and hopefully find some puffins.
Was wild here last night, found a nice wild camping spot but it was blowing a gale, come to put yhe fire on and it wouldn't light, looks like the ignitor has gone, so we found a site and stayed on there just so we could have some heat!
Seems to be picking up today, still a little breezy but the sun is out

Cheers, will have a look.
At Stromness now, back to the bustling city life :-)
Going to head south soon and find a nice beach location to stay tonight, just booked return crossing for thursday morning.
Life goes slow over here, feels like we have been away ages!

Well since John O Migies, sorry John O Groats, we drove down to Inverness after an overnight stay at Helmsdale

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Continued down the A82 down by Loch Ness

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Now at the side of Loch Lomond, not getting  out of the van here, the air is alive affraid 

That A82 is a lovely scenic drive but gets a bit tedious, left bend, right bend, left bend, right bend for about 180 mile, some gorgeous scenery though, especially round Glencoe Very Happy 

Having a rest now from driving, heading for Gretna tomorrow and staying there till Tuesday morning when we set off home
