The Island of Hoy, the very first and probably the only time I saw it without a cloud hanging above it.

Along the walk, there are remains of batteries from World War II and also from earlier wars and also signs telling more about these times and the protection of Scapa Flow.

Ness Battery is surrounded by a golf club and is one of the best-preserved wartime sites.

During WWII Scapa Flow was the base for the Royal Navy and more than 40000 military personnel were based here.
