In breezy drizzle the travellers have been welcomed to Orkney as the ferry slipped quickly passed the Old Man of Hoy a few minutes ago.
Unfortunately the forecast for the next 48 hours is not favourable but we don’t care two hoots about that.
The ferry is just turning into Hamnavoe, we’re close now to Stromness.
Both v excited about reaching Orkney at last. Molly very blasé though – to her it’s just another island to explore.
