Roscoe on Orkney - Part 2

Well we have returned from a weeks holiday on Mainland Orkney. Roscoe had a fabulous time. Wide open beaches, with white sand and turquoise waters, blue skies (some days) Lots of new smells, and places to go. He was far more settled on this holiday than when we went to Loch Lomond. I am hoping that means he feels more secure and like he is part of our family for keeps.

We stayed in a little self catering apartment with sea views called The Noust This was also a Bed and Breakfast and was the local post office and the local pub which did excellent food. Sadly the pub was not dog friendly but the bed and breakfast and the apartment were.

Here is Roscoe settling in to his holiday home

Orkney truly is a magical place and the next couple of photos have no Roscoe in them, but they are typical of the amazing history of these magnificent Islands which are rich in culture. We had many walks around the standing stones and other neolithic sites of interest and we spent Midsummer's night at the Ring of Brodgar celebrating the setting sun as our ancestors may well have done 5000 years ago

Orkney itself proved to be very dog friendly and although many places to eat did allow dogs in the places which didn't had seating outside, thankfully we were blessed with good weather most of the time and there was a distinct lack of midges (The Scottish Mosquito!) Here is Roscoe enjoying his lunch at The Reel in Kirkwall.

We went to see lots of the sites and had many walks along the beautiful beaches Here is Roscoe leaving The Tomb of The Eagles I think he may have been chased out by some of the old souls inside!!

And finally here are a selection of Roscoe having fabulous fun on various walks and at the beaches. Orkney is a fabulous place for a holiday and I think Roscoe will agree. I hope those of you following the blog can see the change in Roscoe, His coat is glossy, he has put on weight and he has a definite Staffy smile
