Wed 4 May. Had 2 interesting days exploring Orkney mainland via ferry from Gills Bay (near John o Groats) to St Margaret’s Hope, Orkney. Stayed at a campsite at Kirkwall where I found a Lidl, a TESCO and a Co-op. Great joy! So we have provisions. Still very weak or no internet though. Drove around the coastal areas of Orkney and visited some of the main tourist spots. Weather challenging as it was very very windy! Returned to mainland Scotland today. Visited Duncansby Head and the amazing sea stacks. We are now southward bound down the east coast. Spending the night in Helmsdale, a picturesque coastal village south of Wick.
