We sailed over to the island of Hoy for a Sunday service with the youth camp and then i took off to take some photos around the north side of Hoy. Its a dramatic and forboding island, wonderfully deserted and isolated. I left the family with friends and went walking for the whole afternoon in the company of cattle, birds, seals and sheep. Heres a few thumbnails to click and enlarge. There are more at Flickr.

Great shots, especially Hoy6. It is amazing that the stone lintels are still providing an awesome frame for the view of the firth.
We are planning a 3 week cycling tour of the Orkneys next August and these photos have just added to our excitement.
Cheers, Three Cheers, and Blessings
