A trip to Birsay for Cake.....



Last Friday I was meeting up with Imperfect and Tense and family (well some of them!) for afternoon tea at Birsay Tea Room on the Orkney Mainland.  The day before had been lovely and sunny so I set forth hoping for lovely bright photos at the Brough of Birsay...... there was a gale blowing.....  But undaunted I sat and watched the waves for a while.  No sign of Mainland Scotland in the distance. Nor of the island of Westray - usually visible.  But there were still big skies, and waves so I wasn't complaining...much.  And then later there was Cake!  So a few photos from my visit to Birsay.

Looking over to the tidal island of the Brough of Birsay....



A few waves below a grey sky


And more...


The cliffs misty with sea spray.....


And the Earl's Palace (well the ruin of it!) in Birsay village....


And then....drum roll..... to the Birsay Tea Room (booking essential!).


A gorgeous view from the table....


And even better in the room!!!


What more can I say...... nom, nom....
