Geoff and Jordan with flatfish

Unexpected catch of the day!  Our guests have come all the way from Somerset expecting to catch brown trout.  They were fishing at Esselmont Bay at the north end of the Harray Loch when the line went tight, but got a surprise when a flat fish landed at their feet!  For those of you who don't know, the Harray Loch is not directly connected to the sea so I am guessing that it lost its way to arrive so far away from salt water.  It must have travelled up through the Stenness Loch and then into Harray Loch.

Due to unforeseen circumstances a regular guest has cancelled their holiday to Kringla 2 from 1st August.  So I can now offer you 1st August for 23 nights!  Perfect location for enjoying the Dounby Show as Kringla is directly across from the show park.  Kringla is so convenient, the local well stocked Co-op is a 2 minute walk away as is the butcher, chemist, craft shop, post office, hairdresser and play park.  Kringla is central to the West Mainland so easy access to most of the archaeological sites and many of the RSPB reserves.  Great beaches and cliff scenery.
