My new travel series: Exploring Orkney: Scotland's Rugged Northern Isles

As I mentioned earlier, I spent a week in the Orkney Islands exploring the archaeological and natural wonders there. I've started a series over at Gadling called "Exploring Orkney: Scotland's Rugged Northern Isles."  There's lots of good photos and information about this region's unique prehistory and folklore. Should be inspiring for writers and travelers alike. Check it out!


  1. The photo of you crawling out of the tomb - no thanks! Not into tight spaces like that.

  2. I'll go over and check that out for sure as hubby is reading King Hereafter by Dorothy Dunnett, which is the story of Macbeth before and during the time he became king of Scotland. It's great and full of history info as Dunnett does her research. I've read it too. A lot of the action takes place in the Orkney Islands.

    I'll go over and comment on the other post.
