Another place that will stay in your memories forever hope you have a good week mate. I really need to go back one day and visit the island of Sanday off Orkney. The son in law owns a patch of land on their it's just a shame it would have been too costly to put a few log cabin type holiday homes on it.

Remember going in a small fishing tackle shop in Kirkwall down a side street and also having the best fish and chips I have ever had wile waiting for the ferry to Sanday also we parked up and had a walk around the stones that are some sort of ancient monument on Kirkwall.

Got to say I enjoyed our week's stay on Sanday even though it was a family holiday though we did take the airguns and fishing tackle and one night after only a couple of hours with a small lamp we had shot 20 plus rabbits near some large sand dunes and next day after skinning them dropped them off at the Belsair pub were the landlord put rabbit stew on the menu.

Everything mentioned above is true. Friendly people, remoteness, good fishing, plenty of military history and lots to do. 
We seen some fantastic places with not another person in sight. I’ll be heading back up there but hopefully for a longer trip.
