With just your camera in this ‘Trick of the Eye’ emporium – we used our mobile phone – you can get some good pics to amuse yourself with – particularly on social media.

No more standing at the edge of the road in all weathers to get this iconic image from Orkney.

The Postcard ones would make good cards to send to friends.

And there are ones that would be especially good for a younger visitor.

You can dress up as Vikings, take a ride on an Orkney carriage and rest your feet on a creepie.

  1. That looks brilliant! I’m a ‘grown-up’, but I’m going to go!
    I notice another bit of “This is small, that is far away” – or – is it – are they?
    I think I’ll get very excited and need a camomile tea.
    Good that there is another all-weather place to go, in Orkney, for visitors and islanders alike, in the holidays.
