    And a welcome from a distant relative (?) on the other side of the North Sea!

    Welcome! I sailed to Stromness once. We went up north afterwards to go down the Scottish east coast and home to Sweden. I was too frightened of the "grottekvarn" in Pentland Firth to choose that way through.

    Welcome from the dead centre of England. Well it feels like that at times Ole and matti are almost certainly closer neighbours than those of us South of the Border but are only related when they can point to the Scandanavian whisky distilleries.

    PS matti. Sensible to avoid the Pentland Firth. A wave there allegedly bent a cruiser's gun barrel prior to the first World War. Others say it was an illusion caused by substituting a ration of "Highland Park" for the normal navy rum!

    And another welcome Davy, this time from the (relative!) fleshpots of Inverness. As luck would have these things, I tried to visit the Firth Cameras website only this afternoon and I see that they have stopped trading. I've popped in there a couple of times when I've visited Orkney in the past and he always seemed to have something interesting, but alas no more!

    Hi Peter,

    Yes, sadly the gentleman that ran Firth Cameras passed away a year or two ago.
    Thank you for your welcome all the same.

    I could point to some of them, but that would make me a few unpleasant enemies. So in the meanwhile let's just say that the best whiskey is made on the other side; and that "Scapa" is one of my absolute favorites.
