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.
The views around Stromness are just absolutely stunning.
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.
Peace Out and Pixie Dust XO
