Another batch of holiday photos:

Plockton's a very pretty little harbour town, and the hotel was right on the harbour front. While I was there there was a wedding on, with the ceremony conducted out on a boat -- luckily they had the weather for it. (Apparently the couple had been coming to Plockton for some years for holidays so they decided to have their wedding there too, and I could see why.) There's also a photo in that set of a wind turbine blade being unloaded at Kyle of Lochalsh -- you don't realise how big those things are until you see one up close at ground level.

Moving on to Thurso the weather was a little bit more cloudy. On the coast you can see how the local rock naturally forms slab-like layers which make perfect flagstones.

St Magnus Cathedral has an impressive collection of 'memento mori' tombstones. (There are more photos of other bits of Orkney to come in the next batch.)

St Magnus Cathedral photos much appreciated -- I looked from the outside but alas did not have time to enter.

I loved the first set of pictures. Beautiful scenery. And it helped that it was sunny.
