On our way to Hoy

Photo: Hills of Hoy Island in late July 2012. Ward Hill (to the left) is the highest hill in Orkney, Scotland. It lies at the north of the island, between Moaness and Rackwick.

Trip: We visited the Northern part of Hoy the last day before we went home. We came there by boarding the passenger ferry Graemsay from Stromness Harbour. I modified this photo in Instagram, but for several hours we had a clear blue sky! And that’s not very common in these islands since the weather swift fast and is unpredictable. With an area of 143 square kilometres (55 sq mi) it is the second largest in the archipelago after the Mainland. It is connected by a causeway called The Ayre to South Walls.
