The Cairns broch and village at Windwick, South Ronaldsay, is rising from the earth, year by year.
“It was a sunny, breezy day, so we thought to avoid the cold East wind, by walking on the West coast – of South Ronaldsay. “
The Hope ( The Hup) is a delightful village with a lot going on so it would be a pity if visitors and locals alike just passed through it instead of taking the time to have a dander about.
“A fine day in December – the wind wasn’t howling, the rain wasn’t lashing, so we decided to go for it. We parked at the ferry terminal and headed round behind the concrete blocks .
Lovely crafted gifts will be on sale on Saturday the 10th and Sunday 11th of November at the Sooth Isles Craft Fair.
“We have families on Hoxa who have worked all their lives, over generations, to keep the area beautiful. It’s a special place from so many aspects”
Definitely take a map!
