'Indoor' garden in Cava

A picture of the garden which the two ladies on Cava had created. This garden if I remember was inside a derelict house. The four walls of the house provided shelter. It was an amazing achievement

"Ida Woodhams built the gardens up from scratch, building up the walls, hedges and digging the ground up. She made a garden inside one of the of the old buildings. The ladies Ida & Meg lived on Cava for 27 1/2 yrs leaving in 1993".

Where did they go when they left? I loved visiting them but lost touch when I went off to college . I remember Ida was a talented artist & Meg could was the gadget expert! Once a year they would set off on a tour of all their friends in the UK on their ancient motorcycle & side car

They left Cava in 1993 and moved to a pair of caravans in Orphir (after a brief stay up the hill at Scorradale I believe). Subsequently to a bungalow in Kirkwall.
