Orkney Cavalcade 23rd May 2021
We gathered at the Glaitness School car park on Sunday 23rd May 2021 for a suitable socially distanced run. This took us to Northfield farm in Burray where Magnus Spence kindly allowed us to park the cars while we walked over two fields for a picnic at an old broch near the shore. This interesting old structure offered us some shelter from the wind as we ate and yarned with our friends which we had not seen for some time.
The afternoon journey took us back across the barriers and on through the west Mainland to visit HMS Tern, a WW2 naval air station, being preserved by the Birsay Heritage Trust. Mr Hollinrake gave us a very interesting talk on the control tower and several other buildings currently being preserved.
We had a good selection of cars on the run as you can see from the photos below.
