I find myself really excited by the prospect of a trip to Orkney this coming weekend! The last summer I went on a road trip to the Isle of Lewis it resulted in this felt piece, depicting Callanish III.
I love old places where the length of time that humanity has been here in Scotland sings out in spite of the best efforts of wind and weather, time and neglect.
This time I hope to get to Skara Brae and some of the Orkney stone circles, such as The Ring of Brodgar, as well as visiting as many artists studios as possible!

I have hundreds of photos from my trip to Lewis last summer, a goldmine of inspiration for years to come… I hope to have a repeat of this for my Orkney trip!
