I was looking out of the window last weekend and thought I saw two Selkie folk emerging from the water.... Turns out they were some folk snorkelling from a wee boat in Sandside Bay. Ah well a girl can dream :-)
And these seem to be regular seals..... they are there - honest
Look a little closer....
And closer still.... a grey seal. As you can see above - Stromness in the background. Photos taken at the Graemsay pier.
And if you want to hear stories about selkies you can do no better than listen to Orkney's very own Tom Muir..... Click here for video and story
