How does it become a ritual gathering place just because they find 5 skellies in the ditch? Posted by Sanctuary

Yes, Hamish and Carol provide a unique experience at Banks. The tomb can be affected by flooding if you're unlucky, but even then the artifacts experience is very special even if Hamish is off fishing. Posted by tomatoman

What a fantastic trip, memories for life without being overdramatic. What are the chances of finding a place like the Skerries Bistro in the middle of nowhere? Banks (Otters) tomb was the icing on the cake, felt like Indiana Jones (whatever that feels like!) Posted by costaexpress

I guess it's the luck of the draw, but we've sailed to & from Orkney twice and used inter island services around Orkney AND sailed three times back and forth between Uig, Skye and Lochmaddy, North Uist. (The short hop between Uist and Harris is a dream!) I spent YEARS believing these "voyages" would be a real issue for me. Now, sailing from Newcastle to Gothenborg......that can be a bit different!

The sea journey was fine. I assume they don't set sail if it's not viable. I found being on deck a good way of counteracting any nausea; plus the views were fabulous anyway. The wind & blasts of sea spray, rain occupied my mind. It was only sitting downstairs that I really felt the motion of the boat & that felt like being tipsy so I enjoyed it! Don't close your eyes though:) Posted by carol27

South Wales is a nightmare for people fly-tipping. I have travelled quite widely all over the UK and nowhere is as bad :( Posted by CARL

It sounds a lovely adventure you all had visiting the stones. Callanish is mind stopping of course but that sea journey puts me off. moss Posted by moss

Feels like you can join the dots up from here on the whole complex. Impressed you use their real names and don't just call them 2, 3 and 4 etc. Posted by costaexpress

Think you would be shocked if you went there now, its firmly moved out of the realms of the ModA and moved mainstream tourism Posted by costaexpress

Glassamucky Brakes / Image by ryaner

Fascinated by the name 'Brakes' appears it means bracken or heather covered area. Not sure if that is what the Brakes here refers to, however, does demonstrate I need to get out more! Posted by costaexpress

Yup, that drive to Ullapool from Inverness is up there with the best scenic routes in the country, can't believe it's coming up 6 years since I last did it. So jealous! ironstone Posted by ironstone

Dinas (Trearddur) / Image by thesweetcheat

Thank you, much appreciated.

I reckon the coast from Trearddur to Cemaes (excepting Holyhead - Valley) is as good as almost anywhere we've been to in the 700+ miles of Welsh coast so far.
