September Road Run 2021
On Sunday 19th September we arranged to meet at the Glaitness School Car park. It was pouring rain but, undaunted, the first man there was Kim Allan in his open Morgan three wheeler. We set off for Stromness via Orphir, where we stopped briefly at the old round church. The rain had stopped by this time and the weather improved throughout the day. When we parked at the harbour in Stromness we went for lunch a Julia’s Café and took a few photos.
Next stop was the Ness Battery, a WW2 coastal defence gun emplacement, still with the wooden accommodation huts intact. Mr Hollinrake met us and gave a very interesting talk on the magnificent mural paintings covering the interior walls of the mess hut. Before long it was time to thank Mr Hollinrake and head for home.
