Is that the mill that used to be at Skaill before the sea took the ground from under it?

Hi Alistair no not Skail but on the West"ish" coast o' Orkney .

I can't remember the name of that building but it is in North Hoy, overlooking Hoy Mouth - is it Selwick?

I think that is Braebister in the distance.

You're right enough, Steven.

Yes you have all got it, hids Selwick in Hoy.A place not seen very often from the land but passengers traveling on the Havnavoe get a view as they pass the Kame entering Hoy Sound. Just off Salwick lies the boiler and engine from the "Stratheliot" wrecked in 1953.
