#orkneyislands fantastic

Despite having the handle Skye, I have not been posting much on the Isle of Skye or Scotland! Ten days ago I was on a cruise and I have yet to post anything from the cruise except for Norway. So starting with Orkney and this summer's archeological site next to the Ring of Brodgar. #historicscotland #orkney #fredolsen #ringofbrodgar #nessofbrodgar #visitscotland #ringofstones #scotland #orkneyislands #orkneyicecream #orkneymainland #orkneycheese

this is what it looks like up north north north of the UK - I wouldn’t bother coming yourself though, it’s all ancient rocks and boats. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 #escocia #écosse #scotland #orkney #cruising #orkneyislands #kirkwall #threegenerations

Bye bye Orkney, you're amazing

This time last week ❤🦅⛰

A still early morning at the Ness of Brodgar Last year. The beautiful Stenness Loch and Hoy offering a moment of calm before a busy days work. To keep up with what's going on this year go follow @nessofbrodgar . For more images like this one, my book 'Open to the Public' is available from the link in my bio.

#Stoats were only first seen on Orkney in 2010, how they arrived there nobody knows. They are very cute but quite deadly to Short Eared Owls, Hen Barriers and other ground nesting birds. I came across this one at #Marwick Head (reported to Scottish Natural Heritage). #orkney #orkneyislands #nikond700

On our own, looking at our past on Orkney. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 The Ring of Brodgar is a Neolithic henge and stone circle. It is in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney – a complex of monuments, settlements and tombs that was granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1999 • #orkneyislands #ringofbrodgar #ancient #history #nature #orkney #scotland #uk #naturegram #naturelovers #nature_perfection #travelgram #instatravel #neolithic #getoutside #thegreatoutdoors #explore #travel #landscape #landscapephotography #photography #naturephotography
