Scotland Adventure Day 3- Clootie Well, Duncansby Head & Stacks, John O’Groats, Tomb of Eagles, Liddel Burnt Mound, Windwick Bay, Olad Summit, Churchill Barriers, Kirkwall, Orkney

Day thhhhreeee!

This morning we left Inverness bright and early and stopped at a Clootie Well along the way.

These are places where you dip a piece of cloth belonging to a loved one who is ill into a spring of water and then tie it to the surrounding branches- in the hopes of helping their recovery.

Really interesting place. I’ve never seen anything like this.

We stopped at Duncansby Head – a nice saunter by the water.

The Duncansby Stacks.

Then we went on to John o’Groats

Strike a pose.

Next we went over to Orkney- our first stop there was Tomb of the Eagles a Neolithic chambered tomb.

We actually got to touch some of the artifacts found in the tomb. You can see on this piece of pottery nail imprints.

I would like a view like this one on my doorstep please.

We also fell in love with these cows and my tour-mate Ben fed one grass from his mouth. That’s love.

We also went to The Liddle Burnt Mound a Bronze Age site.

Everything is very green- yet there are very, very few trees on the islands. We checked out Windwick Bay as well as Olad Summit as we drove along.

This is one of the Churchill Barriers part of a series of four causeways in Orkney.

Kirkwall at night.

    omygosh ah maze ink. I want that salmon. And those cliffs are beautiful. Also, I wish I was in a land where one can layer and wear a jacket. That would be lovely.
