Goodness, you are bringing back all my memories of Kirkwall. I loved St Magnus - it's such a magnificent space for what, on the outside, is a fairly small cathedral. And the shops and streets of Kirkwall too...

I'm so glad you loved it so much.

Deb Robson

Freyalyn, I loved Kirkwall and Orkney. The Cathedral: AMAZING. Just the floors and the walls. You know what I mean. All those smaller spaces within that big open space. I would like to watch it in use over the course of a week: just sit there and see how people relate to it. Ive never been any place like it.

Did you get to climb up inside the cathedral? The view from the top is fascinating, but the spaces inside look so different as youre climbing, they have all sorts of stones and archaelogical stuff on display on the way up, and you can see the windows closer too.

Deb Robson

Okay, Freyalyn, I definitely need to go back. The time available was very short--at the end of a day, as they were closing in 30 minutes. I mostly looked at the tiles on the floor, the carved stones all along the outside walls, and the textiles. I missed any climbing up.


Great pictures!

And Tam strikes me as an excellent name for the new dog. As soon as I saw it, I thought "of course!" :)
