Day Eleven, 25 April 2013

The Pentland Ferry saved the day when rival Northlink Ferry broke down and canceled sailings to Orkney.  We visited Skara Brae which pre-dates the pyramids, strolled around Stromness , viewed the Ring of Brodgar and finished at Highland Park Distillery.

The ancient settlement sets on the edge of the sea.

Stromness once known as a fishing port , is the home to current tidal energy research.
