One of the many unique doors of St. Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall, Orkney Islands. The dominant structure known as the 'Light in the North' was founded in 1137 by the Viking, Earl Rognvald.
With 900 years of history, the grounds are steeped in old world wonder. Significantly, the cathedral contains the bell of the HMS Royal Oak which was sunk off the Orkney Islands during WW2.

Anyone else just end up making their own?! I'm pretty fussy with a good brew. If it's crap you'll be told 😂

Selkies
This piece was inspired primarily by @krisvang 's photographs of wild, desolate landscapes. I began to think of the folklore that resides within cold, mountainous regions bounded by seas. I began to think of selkies, which feature in Orcadian and Scottish folklore. Selkies are beings that possess the ability to shift their shape between seal on the sea and human on land. A very common motif is of the seal wife, who has her skin stolen away by a human man. She remains on land, for a time, until she discovers her sealskin again, and the call of the sea is too strong. Check out the link in my bio for the full story!

A cool, working "grey fergie" here at Birsay awaiting his creeler/crofter's return, like a faithful dog. One for the Dead tractor Society collection.

The horses and ponies on Orkney seem really special. Gentle and so sentient, she reminds me of "Daisy" a pony we once had.

Yet another demon horse cuz I gotta do 9 more of these before the 1st of August. This one is a Knuckelavee it’s from Orcadian mythology and has origins in Norse mythology but he’s a creature from the sea who is a hybrid of a human and a horse and basically rise from the water to kill you. It has no skin or hair so I tried to make it look like it was just raw flesh and muscle but it didnt go down so well. Also out of all the mythological horses I’m drawing this is probably the only one I would not get near.

The #Orkneys bade us farewell with a full rainbow. It was amazing. Had not realized how rooted these islands are in their Nordic heritage. And then there's the landscape and wildlife. Stunning. Will definitely come back - probably to cycle! :P #orkney #norse #broch #orcadian #northmythology #orkneysaga #cliffs #puffins #northernbeaches

Orkney is only a few miles off the Scottish mainland. To visit by sea you must cross the Pentland Firth, said by Lonely Planet to be one of Europe’s must dangerous waterways. Luckily for me, on the day we returned to the mainland the seas were pretty tame.

Here’s me snapping away on a wind swept hill in Hoy in Orkney loving life. I can quite comfortably say this was thee best Orkney trip I’ve ever had. Looking at my face you can see I’m quite literally the cat that got the cream! Thanks to everyone that made it so much fun especially @enjathomson @marielle_thomson @usherdylan and all the others who know who they are! This time I mixed it up a bit and cycled around some other spots including Sanday with all it’s amazing beaches and stayed at a wonderfully welcoming B&B called Backaskaill. I’ve added all my stories from Orkney to my highlighted Stories if you missed any of my ramblings. If you ever need to get away from it all by yourself and not feel alone, Orkney won’t disappoint. I’ll just keep my fingers crossed for good weather for you!

Day 9 of #julyshelfawareness is #mapmonday 📖
The Shore and Roond Aboot has a map of Kirkwall where I grew up. This map is of the area from around the time of WWII. I lived there from 1972-1994.

-The secrets words won't tell-
🏖️
➖Un whisky pas trop tourbé, un peu iodé voire végétal mais très rond, un peu de miel et de fruit, et une fin assez courte. Peu complexe, on en fera pas un livre, surtout qu’en se moment, je suis plus sur du rhum.
Trininidad et Tobago ou l’Île Maurice.. on verra mais les dégustations étaient surprenantes 🤪 ▪️

LONG HOT SUMMER: If I said I was abroad it would be believed.. in the last 3 years I've had more long, hot summer days than in the entire 23 years prior.. this is not to take away from Orkney or Scotland which has immense beauty in summer and winter regardless of the temperature, it's just to say I'm so fucking glad I live in the south of England in summer 😂 #orcadian #inengland #loveforboth #northandsouth #degreesinthehightwenties #patioweather #wineweather #tunbridgewells #orkneygirl #summer #intherightplace

Sorry for being inactive... Again😬 I've had a lot going on lately so I've not been able to manage this account just now. So here's a pic of the St Magnus Cathedral from the top of the Bishop's Palace to make up for it😁⛪️

Had a wonderful opportunity yesterday to take the journey through some extraordinary whisky from Highland Park including this bad boy: 1970 Orcadian Vintage. Laid down in 1970 and bottled in 2010. Aged in refill Spanish oak oloroso sherry casks to create a beautifully delicate richness.
It was truly a privilege to taste 35 honorary Vikings out on this whisky on such an important date: the Summer Solstice.

Drive to this gorgeous wee spot, outs the Broch of Birsay, it's very exposed to weather, but stunning.

Believed the first whisky ever which is selected after an online tasting by experts all over the world.
From four samples this Highland Park 1974 was the winner. Bottled in 1998 with 52.6 % abv, released 228 bottles.
A real collectors item!

Out wildlife hunting all day and we get home and there's a short eared owl in the garden! Looking right at us. Not much time to get a decent photo before it left.
So far, we've seen grey and common seals, more curlews and oystercatchers than you can shake a stick at, stonechat, whinchat, redshanks, razorbills, guillemots, black guillemots, shags, fulmars, terns, greylag geese and goslings, swans with cygnets, hares, black rabbits, lapwings, skuas, greater black backed gulls, black headed gulls, eider ducks with ducklings, skylarks, linnets, meadow pippets, jellyfish, Northern marsh orchid, sundews, cotton grass, lousewort, milkwort, birds foot trefoil, tormentil, so many lichens and mosses...plus loads more.... Still no otters, orcas or dolphins. We'll keep trying. Fab holiday. With my ecologist guide and hubby @thecolumbarium

❤️It's taken me 20+ years of family history research to *finally* make it to Orkney (the islands off the north coast of Scotland). I cannot lie—I cried when I got here. ❤️I have English, Irish, German, Scottish and Scandinavian ancestry, but the Orkney part has always felt most 'me.' My love for this place has influenced my books: Alex Sinclair in London Belongs to Me and London, Can You Wait? gets her surname from Orkney (it's one of the most popular names here & is also one of mine) & when it came to finding a name to publish under, I chose Kirkwall, Orkney's main city. ❤️And now I've finally come home. I just wish my mum was alive so I could tell her "I made it, Mum."❤️
❤️Here's a snap of St. Magnus Cathedral, which began its life in 1137 and took 300 years to complete! Orkney has a strong connection to Norway because it was in Norwegian hands until the 1400s.
