More impressions from Orkney

Every trip ends with lots of pictures. Some I use in my posts, others just don’t find a place. After four days on Orkney it is quite amazing to realize how much we have seen. From the walking tour on Hoy, the sightseeing around Kirkwall, the many Neolithic sites, the standing stones, and the many beaches, all of this and so much more was a sight to behold. But as usual there some pictures and since Scotland is always beautiful, no matter where you go, I don’t want to keep these from you. So here are a couple of more pictures from Orkney. Yours, Pollybert
