Laura - My sister and I went last summer to Scandinavia with Women Traveling Together - first time I'd been anywhere in a number of years. But I've traveled a lot in the British Isles, been to New Zealand, been to Iceland. Have you actually signed up for this? I have. Perhaps we could arrange to meet?

Laura Dooley - You sound like me: first time, solo, from Boston, in need of roommate. Where are you from? I'm in Concord (Mass). Nancy Bond


Laura Dooley Mar 24, 2013 at 10:18 AM

1st time RS, solo, female from Boston would like to go on this trip
Anyone need a roommate...

Here's the bus info: The Stagecoach bus company operates a half-day tour from Kirkwall to see Skara Brae, Ring of Brodgar and the Italian Chapel. Departs 10am, returns 2.25pm. Buy your ticket on the bus.
Nancy Bond Mar 20, 2013 at 05:15 PM

That sounds good. I'd wanted to see the Ring of Brodgar, too. Nancy Bond - Nancy Bond


Minnie Aline Mar 19, 2013 at 07:33 PM

I was told that the tour of Skara Brae will be possible. We probably have to make the arrangements on our own. I'll try to find out more as we get closer to the trip.


Nancy Bond Mar 13, 2013 at 06:16 PM

I'm traveling solo for my first Road Scholar trip and wondered if there are others flying from Boston/Logan on the 25th. I'm also looking for a roommate. For the record, I agree - I'd be interested in a tour of Skara Brae.

Minnie Aline Feb 28, 2013 at 01:19 PM

Would it be possible to take the tour to Skara Brae while we are in Kirkwall? I realize it would cut into some of the group tour time in the morning. I believe the tours are from around 10:00am to 2:00pm.
