Churchill Barriers

Continuing the drive we went east of Kirkwall. We crossed the Churchill Barriers, built during WWII after U47 penetrated the defences and sank the Royal Oak with heavy loss of life. Given the tides running it must have been some job.



We had a sandwich at St Margaret’s Hope with the view below.


Before driving back through the countryside and eventually overlooking Kirkwall.
