2010 – Tour of Orkney & Shetland

In June 2010 we joined the Sunbeam, Talbot & Darracq Register for their summer tour of the Orkney and Shetland Islands, off the north coast of Scotland. The weather was mostly fantastic although a bit chilly at times. We visited some amazing sights including SKARA BRAE, the ITALIAN CHAPEL (created by Prisoners of War) and MUCKLE FLUGGA, the most northerly road in the British Islands.
