Last few sights before London|Orkney Day Five

We started our last day with another museum trip – what can I say I love museums.

The Stromness Museum is situated within the heart of the village and is full of local stories and pieces of history.

As the weather was so lovely we just strolled throughout the village soaking up all the beautiful views.

We popped into Kirkwall for a spot of lunch at a lovely cafe and live music venue called The Reelย before flying home to London.

I absolutely adored my time in Orkney and my mum and I are already planning a trip back next year but this time with my sister and her family. It’s absolutely stunning and I only saw a small snippet of it.

Fossils, Travelling Bears and Long Walks|Orkney Day Four

Orkney is surprisingly easy to get around despite being a group of islands.

On our last full day of the holiday we set off to Burray to visit the Fossil and Heritage Centre.

Full of amazing fossils and trinkets including a gorgeous piece about the travelling teddy bear Jasper.

We then went on to Hoxa Head in hopes of spotting some puffins…

No puffins but beautiful views.

I highly recommend checking out the Hoxa Tea Rooms for tea and teacakes!

The walk back to St Margarets Hope – where the bus stop is – is long but gorgeous.

I went for the Lamb Chops with Honey Mint Sauce with Chips and Salad followed by White Chocolate and Apricot Roulade both were equally amazing.

We retired back to our rooms hoping for a sunny day in the morning for more exploring.
