Landed on Orkney

You may have read recently about a red-winged blackbird, which was blown over to Orkney from its usual home in America. Well, Go Hebrides found themselves there too this week, but we had an invite – as a guest of our friends at Hidden Hebrides!

This picture was taken at Noup Head on Westray, and it’s already teeming with seabirds, including Gannets, Guillemots, Razorbills, Fulmars and Kittiwakes.

Mick and the team go the extra mile by visiting no less than four of the Orkney islands during the week, and all are must-see destinations, including the spectacular Old Man of Hoy, the highest sea stack in the UK.

We love the Hebrides, but have to admit Orkney is pretty special too!
