- Shetland shenanigansOn Monday we trundled into Lerwick on the bus, and it was everything you could want from a bus ride – clean, comfortable, quiet, scenic. Excellent work Shetland. We wandered the shops of Lerwick, and it seemed that Posted by Buccas in 2016 - The Year of the Nink | Jul 14, 2016
- Puffins, planes and pre-historic settlementsThursday morning rolled around and we rolled into Lerwick. Even though the boat docked at 7am, passengers were permitted to remain onboard and consume breakfast until 9.30am. How very civilised!
We enjoyed our reasonably priced continental breakfast bu Posted by Buccas in 2016 - The Year of the Nink | Jul 9, 2016
- Bruce's final adventuresTuesday morning was tinged with sadness, because we woke up in a Lois-and-Tony-less caravan park. It was also considerably less full than it had been over the weekend, and a new mob of non-folkie related travellers began to arrive.

- The Adventures of Bruce and BrunoWe started the Orkney Folk Festival weekend in a very pleasant way indeed - with a walk around the golf course! We spotted seals and golfers, and a rather hipster looking fellow with beard, kilt and dog in tow. Posted by Buccas in 2016 - The Year of the Nink | May 30, 2016
- The Adventures of Bruce and BrunoSaturday brought sunshine in Glasgow - again! We definitely found it easier to appreciate the city in these pleasant weather conditions, compared to previous visits when the weather had been a little more... inclement.

- Making the most of the coastYesterday we left Aberdeen and enjoyed a particularly scenic drive along the east coast of Scotland, despite Feodora’s insistence on finding the quickest route.
