We arrive late into the day, at Kirkwall airport, which has it’s name written in runic about the main entrance! After dropping off the bags we go and have a wander into the capital city, Kirkwall. Yes, that’s Kirkwall City, it’s flat and grey and about the size of Bakewell. The Saturday night entertainment was in the form of the Kirkwall City Pipe Band, who came out of a side street and marched up and down the main street outside St Magnus Cathederal for about an hour. Afterwards, with ears still ringing, we went to go look at the outside of the red sandstone Cathederal.
