Shetland and Orkney highlights

A Speyside Wildlife holiday

Shetland - 18-23 June | Orkney 24-27 June 06

Orcas Lerwick Sound, Shetland | June 06
You know what its like. You wait for Orcas for years and three pods come along at once! This was the second pod we saw (a group of 8). The first pod (of 5) was nailed only 35 minutes after landing on 18 June, and the third was a group of three on our Orkney leg watched from the entrance of the Tomb of the Eagles!
