Triana, a friend who lives in the US, has been wanting to visit Orkney for a long time, as have I. So when she came to Scotland for a wedding, we planned a trip.
After researching coaches, ferries, trains, etc we found the best way to go was the short flight from Glasgow to Kirkwall, Orkney.
We booked this hotel which we were very pleased with:
The Shore Hotel
Since I can only drive automatic cars, Triana drove the hire car.
And off we go.............
