Big skies and changing weather,
Fields of impossible green,
Punctuated by the grey and whitewash of farm buildings.
Cows and sheep come to roadside fences to greet,
Everywhere history, a cairn of some five thousand years,
Or a deserted airbase, the control tower and cinema still standing.
Add in a warm welcome on every occasion.
Orkney is a destination and inspiration.
