Orkney Island Stones (C) 2014 by Debi Bradford
I’ve returned from the land of Ents, fairies and elves.
I understand there are also trolls, mermaids and various monsters of great legend in its mountains and lochs.
Ancient cobblestones beneath my feet
I toured castles and cathedrals,
a 5,000+ year settlement,
circles of standing stone,
falconry and sheep herding,
rode ferries to isles,
and back again,
sipped decadent Orkney ales
and touched peat from a bog.
Nearly 4,000 photos must be culled through,
and most importantly,
Scotland is nothing short of magical.
I love Scotland.
I knew I would.
Scotland is an incredibly GREEN country and its people are warm and friendly.
Time to get back to work but
