Yesterday we decided to visit Rerwick by leaving from Inganess Bay and continuing on to the Hall of Tankerness. The first part of the paddle to Yinstay Head was a rather dull open water crossing but at least there were a few caves to see at the head. Peter at Yinstay
We then crossed over towards Rerwick Head where we stopped for a break on a small beach. After our repast we carried on round the corner. The east facing coast, despite being somewhat sheltered by Deerness, the most eastern part of mainland Orkney, still gets battered enough by the winter storms to boast some great caves and passageways.Dennis at Rerwick
One of the best tunnels is know as the Hole of Roe. This is perhaps 50m long and is great fun. Jackie passes through the Hole of Roe
The last section of the paddle gave me a chance to practice my forward paddling as we headed towards the pier at Hall of Tankerness. I think this was probably built in the days of the herring fisheries but sees little activity these days.
