Had a pleasant day in Kirkwall but early start to catch the 7:30am boat. On arrival in Kirkwall at 9:30am:
Visit #1 - barber for a hair cut
Visit #2 - dentist to replace a missing filling
Visit #3 - Albert Hotel for fish 'n chips
Visit #4 - Balfour Hospital for annual retinopathy check.
And the weather was unbelievable. It was warm, there was no howling gale and it only rained once, just as I got on the 4pm boat back to Stronsay.
Hopefully that's my last trip to Kirkwall this year.
