Today the temperature must have got above freezing at some point as quite a bit of snow has disappeared from Graemsay and the water in the hen house wasn't frozen! But I can see lots of snow still on the higher ground of Orkney Mainland and of course on Hoy (Hoy means High island - due to the hills). And today there are 50mph winds from the South East, blowing snow off the fields. Not such a problem on Graemsay due to the thaw but roads closed and vehicles stuck on the Mainland. This weekend is one of the mass vaccination events in Kirkwall, but NHS Orkney have said they will make appointments available during the week for those who cannot attend this weekend.
Anyway back to snowy scenes..... Below is the Manse on Graemsay with Ward Hill on Hoy as a backdrop.
The croft of Quoys by the shore....
Across the water to Stromness
Hope you enjoyed your wander in the snow!
