Back and No Backing
Yesterday afternoon two members of the Scottish Islands Explorer team visited The Orcadian. When staff photographer, Craig Taylor, was taking Marc Calhoun and John Humphries back into town a short detour was made to capture a sight that will give both local residents and travellers a feeling of relief. The bow doors on two of the vessels of Orkney Ferries, Earl Sigurd and Earl Thorfinn, are now working again since they were out of action from last January and from May of last year. This meant that vehicles had to be reversed on board, a sometimes complicated manoeuvre. Here is Craig's photograph that will be welcomed by many.
