Northern Scotland and the Orkneys (3/7)
Here are some of my photographs taken during a visit to the North of Scotland
and the Orkneys at the end of August 2000.
This is a view from the coach window on the way to Kirkwall, the main town
of Orkney. Across the field a road can be seen linking to the adjacent island.
In this area of water old ships were sunk during the second world war to make
it more difficult for German U-boats to take this route from the North Sea
to the Atlantic. These were known as The Churchill Barriers.
The thirteenth century cathedral at Kirkwall.
This is the view inside the cathedral. The rose coloured stone is very appealing
in the sun light.
