Hello! This podcast is an overview of my experiences in the Orkney Islands, when I visited back at the end of May. They're not a group of islands that are that well-known in the UK, as they feel kind of just 'a little too far' from most people, who'll tend to visit more accessible places like Skye and Mull. Much of the pod is also putting my experiences into context; for instance the islands have a very long history of human habitation and some of the sites I visited are very special. Topics discussed include: * Settling into Glasgow * A day trip to Falkirk * The location of the Orkney Islands * Neolithic Orkney - Skara Brae and Stone Circles * Very short flights * The history and birdlife of Papa Westray * Hiking on Westray, and more birdlife * Hiking on Orkney Mainland, and even more birdlife * The Navy at war * 101 things to do with a prefab metal hut, several tin cans, and a car exhaust * Kirkwall The only contribution in this episode comes from Clazz, who blogs at An Orcadian Abroad. However, there's also an extract from a local band at the start, who performed live on Papa Westray during my stay there. A PDF transcript of this episode is available. As always, if you have anything to say about the topic, or indeed about my podcasting in general, leave a comment or let me know. The pod has a Facebook group you can join, too. I also have a Patreon - if you like what you hear, and want to access exclusive content (or just to show your appreciation), then head on over. Until next time, bye for now. :)
