Viewing Neverland and Skimming Stones|Orkney Day One

Orkney is a place loved by the rest of my family but somewhere I have never been,

So when my mum and I were thinking about where to holiday this summer it was top of our list.

After flying on the smallest plane i’ve ever flown on – it seated around 30 people. I caught my first glimpse of The Orkney Islands; which through the clouds looked like Neverland.

We checked into our charming little hotel in Stromness (on the mainland) The Ferry Inn.

Linked to a proper country pub with friendly staff and an amazing menu – more on that later.

Not wanting to miss out on any of the day we set off for a ‘stroll’ around Ness Point.

We stopped to skim stones and collect pebbles before heading back for dinner.

We ate at the hotel where I went for a house special. Beer Battered Haddock with Homemade Tartare Sauce, Handcut Chips and Peas – the dish speaks for itself.

Followed by sharing a Rhubarb Fool with my mum.

Exhausted but excited for the next day we retired early.
