Have we just stumbled upon one of the world’s oldest cruising grounds? The Vikings liked to use it to ‘winter over’, more than 1,500 years ago!
Orkney Island has such a large Neolithic history, that with our second chance to visit this island, we want to explore as much of it as possible. Scooting around on our handy new bikes, we were able to see the Scapa Flow, one of the largest protected harbors in the world, and a favorite of Vikings in millenia past.
Further inland, we visited places like the Maeshowe Chamber Carin, and Ring of Brodgar, all built around 2,500 BC, as well as the Stones of Stenness. Which are believed to be the oldest stone henge in the British Isles.
Once we’r able to see all we can by land, we bring Elements over to a protected anchorage next to a long sandy beach, where the fall weather changes from storms to sun just long enough for us to bring Georgie out for an afternoon at the beach.
Much love from Scotland!
Jessica, Matt & Georgie
