Well, the Met Office have issued gales warnings for this area and for all points north of us. That means that our best laid plan of yesterday, to go north and around Muckle Flugga – and, yes, it is a real place – has had to be re-thought. Robbie, oh Robbie.
Ergo, Wick here we come. One day in the Orkneys and no chance to go to the Shetlands. Still, that leaves it as a challenge for another year and therefore something to look forward to.
