Hillswick

I started my day in the Northmavine with a little stroll around Hillswick and having some coffee in the Hillswick hotel – enjoyed outside in the sunshine. As a 2nd score of the day, I found a bottle of Shetland Reel Fliska Gin in the Hillswick shop, a limited edition and remembered how the poor guy at Shetland Reel had to peel all those grapefruits for the gin. It was worth it though!

After a visit to the fun toilet, I went on a little hike around the Hillswick peninsula – but didn´t take the camera with me. Something I quickly regret as it was stunning. But it was also nice to enjoy the cliffs without thinking about pictures.

Ollaberry

My lovely little cottage was near Ollaberry in the Northmavine – in the evening I took a little stroll along the coastline to look out for otters.

I didn´t see any otters but met a few lovely dogs and their owners. But it was also quite disturbing to see a lot of dumped cars in the area. Some even with their plates still on. According to my hosts, people don´t get fined for dumping their cars somewhere and the community can´t afford to have them towed away all the time.
