Decks, Not City, Deserted
Yesterday saw 'The City and Royal Burgh of Kirkwall' coping ... with up to 7000 visitors from the decks of three liners moored at Hatson. The streets were thronged and coaches plied the routes to the various Orkney attractions. The footfall per square foot of the shopping area well exceeded that of Oxford Street - at least for the time that the cruise ships stayed.
