For me there's no better a place than #orkney to relax and live life at a slower pace..at least for a couple of weeks anyway. #stromness #orkneyislands #visitorkney #cycle #retro #lumixg80
This puffin came over to say hello as we watched them at the Castle of Burrian in Westray. #castleofburrian #puffin #nature #westray #visitorkney #orkney #seabirds #loves_scotland #insta_scotland #natgeo #outdoors #rspb_love_nature #birdwatching

Shapinsay reflection • well I did something special today! Along with the Orkney Rowing Club we rowed in St Ayles Skiffs and Shetland Yoals to the island of Shapinsay for tea and cake! I got a couple shots afterwards. . . . . . #sonya6000 #visitscotland #orkneyislands #naturephotography #visitorkney #orkney #scotspirit #scotland #reflection #shapinsay #island #row #explore #adventure #wanderlust #sony #travel #travelphotography #passionpassport #islandlife #bbctravel #summer #yoal #staylesskiff
Afternoon tea.
Professor Mark Edmonds was among the experts at the Stenness school today with examples of Neolithic art. Mark is pictured with his favourite example from the Ness.

By far the cutest visitor to the site today. Three-month-old Caitlyn with her mum Sarah, a Ness veteran and Structure Ten supervisor.

Last photo of Westray for a week!

A few pictures of the excavation and Open Day activities @nessofbrodgar and Stenness Hall taking place today. The site was swarming with crowds from 11am this morning. Even Bryn the site dog seemed captivated by all the activity! Still a few hours left so make sure to visit while there's still time!

Returned to what I think is my favourite beach I’ve explored so far on Orkney. It’s oot east down a little single track dead end road. Stopped for an ice cream on the way home...... I’m not the only one who is partial to Orkney Ice Cream. 😊 #loveorkney #visitorkney #orkney #lovewhereilive #deerness #eastisbest #orkneyicecream #fizzdog
Silage time and it's a busy spell for the farmers. Cutting, gathering and carting away, the patchwork colours of the fields changes with each passing day #visitstronsay . . . . #visitorkney #loveorkney #stronsayranger #northlinkferries #visitscotland #hiddenscotland #scotlandmagazine #scotlandinsta #scotlandisnow #bbcscotland #bbctravel #landward #countryfile #orkneyfarming #silagetime
It’s been very quiet on Boris’ page because we have been busy planning a wedding! You may also be able to tell that I am #32weekspregnant with our #babyboy so it’s been a busy few months! #boristhebus was our very beautiful #weddingcampervan - only after a few dramas with the exhaust. Luckily we have a super mechanic called Ricardo who took a day out of his own holiday to get us back on the road in time for the #wedding We decided to marry in #orkney as it’s a place of great significance for us and we hope to #honeymoon in our #vwt25 for a few weeks 🤙 I should say thanks to @tiffanyrosematernity for being absolute darlings and ensuring I had a gorgeous dress to wear on the day! We should also like to thank @lbichan for being our fantastic #weddingphotographer and @salon7_orkney for doing a wonderful job of #weddinghairandmakeup @visitorkney @visitscotland #vwt25camper #scottishwedding #babyboybump #visitorkney #visitscotland #vwscotland #vwcampervan
Today is the first @nessofbrodgar open day of the season! Great family day out, one not to miss! It's also an opportunity to get your own copy of 'Open to the Public', on sale in the site dig shop! Also available to purchase online at the Ness of Brodgar website, see link in bio.
A day in the Neolithic heart of Orkney, starting with a morning visit to The Ring of Brodgar. #adderleytravel #gardentour #visitorkney
Have you crawled through the 9 metre long entrance passage to see inside our wonderful 5000 year old Quoyness Chambered Cairn? #visitsanday #sanday #sandayranger #orkney #visitorkney #visitscotland #neolithicorkney #historicscotland #history #archaeology

Sunday. Today I am looking forward to listening to the Archers, finishing the book I am reading, and my next run on couch25k. Oh and the highlight of my day? The ironing 😂. This picture was taken an afternoon walk with my daughter on Friday. A lovely day (apart from the pollen). Taken from South Ronaldsay with the Hoy Hills and the distance. #Hoy #visitorkney #loveorkney #couch25k #thegreatoutdoors #selfcare #ICU_scotland #instascotland #runnersofinstagram #myweekend #theweekend #seaview #sea #seascape
Found this photo from last year taken on a snowy day in Orkney. I love the cross pattern the tracks make in the snow, the texture of the snow on the fields and of course the blue sky. And how about the cow having an ice block in the foreground. Cool, really cool! . . #love #instagood #photooftheday #photo #beautiful #travel #instatravel #blindartists #snow #patterns #landscape #snowscene #texture #landscapephotography #capture #ig_capture #travelphotography #orkney #visitorkney #adventure #exploring #stunning #animal #farm #composition #photography #cow #abstract #weather #thisisscotland
Good day over on Hoy (even if it did rain while we walked up to the Old Man) with @sweyn.worthy and @jp_stead - went to the Dwarfie Stane, Betty Corrigall's grave, walked to the Old Man of Hoy and even stopped for an ice cream at Emily's Ice-Cream Parlour, also saw some Highland Coos on the way back to the boat! • • • #Adventure #DayOut #Friends #HiddenScotland #HoyHills #History #Horizon #Hoy #IceCream #Island #NoFilter #Orkney #Rain #SamsungGalaxyS8 #Sea #Scotland #Scenery #VisitOrkney #Views #VisitScotland #LensBible #OldManOfHoy #SeaStack #DwarfieStane #BettyCorrigall #EmilysIceCreamParlour #Walk #Puffin #Seal #Rackwick
Trip to #Papay on the bikes for last day of Holidays! Basically the birthplace of civilisation.... 😜
These old buildings sit in Balfour village in the Orkney island of Shapinsay. Just look at how much character they have - how many islanders do you think have passed through them, and along the road behind, over the years? ❤ #visitorkney #loveorkney

Today I discovered this tiny wonky boathouse on the island of Rousay. An island stuffed with archaeology and bursting with nature. . . . #islandlife #boathouse #boathouses #rurallife #thisismycommunity #visitorkney

A few Puffins seen flying past today during our somewhat soggy WDC Shorewatch. None as close or as obliging as this beauty seen earlier in the year though! #sandayranger #sanday #orkney #visitsanday #visitorkney #visitscotland #puffin #shorewatch #wdc #wildlife #wildlifephotography

Summertime means long hours of daylight up here. Even at 11pm you can enjoy watching the seals partying off the Housebay shoreline, viewed towards Auskerry lighthouse. The orcas would have a field day if they discover this place #visitstronsay . . . #visitorkney #loveorkney #stronsayranger #northlinkferries #visitscotland #hiddenscotland #scotlandmagazine #scotlandinsta #lpfanphoto #bbcscotland #bbctravel #selkies #auskerry #orkneywildlife #orkneyshore
Late night trip to the Knowe of Yarso
Good fishing at the New Pier yesterday morning!! #papay #pier #fishing #north #island #orkney #visitorkney
Today I went to Westray and saw some puffins! I had never seen them before until today. They're a lot smaller than I was expecting but they're really cute. They have to flap their little wings like crazy to fly. I shot the puffins with an old East-German lens that cost about £15. This was the first time I had used the lens. It's reasonably compact and isn't too heavy on my little micro 4 thirds body. ...

The long road ahead • as I have said before this is my favourite view. Every time I come over the hill it looks all together different and yet the same. . . . . #visitscotland #orkneyislands #nature #orkney #travelphotography #landscapephotography #landscape #country #empty #bluesky #visitorkney #orkney #wanderlust #walk #naturephotography #travel #travelphotography #scotspirit #scotland #sonya6000 #sony #view #adventure #passionpassport #bbctravel #explore #summer

Orkney on a sunny day - what fabulous views at Skara Brae and Marwick Head
A screenshot of Jim Bright's new 3D model of Structure Twenty-Six - which looks like being one of the last structures on site and is producing artefacts that were probably plundered from the ruins of Structure Ten (the so-called Neolithic cathedral). .

Best selfie ever!!!!! I’ve had two bits of good news this last couple days..... I have a job. Tonight will be spent with a bottle of something and my casting on my #naturesshades project. #fizzdog #loveorkney #visitorkney #orkney #evie
Investigating archeology at Ness of Brodgar dig yesterday. Absolutely fascinating. Even the girls managed the 90min talk. #orkney #visitorkney #brodgar #nessofbrodgar #scotland #archeology #archeologicaldig #neolithic #visitscotland
Skara Brae, Orkney
Bonny morning for a jolly to Shap! #visitorkney #visitscotland #bonnyday
Seeing a pod of orcas in the wild is a million times better than seaworld.
