Could be Otter

We have arrived in our lovely self catering cabin on Orkney. Great place with fab views. We have already had a baby curlew in the garden, a snipe, a large colony of terns nesting behind us and fulmars hovering in the front.
We had a great journey up stopping at the storehouse for breakfast and Lybster harbour for a coffee and cake. We went to The Castle of Mey and walked round the beautiful gardens, we bought a cucumber and some rhubarb picked that morning by the garden for £! each and Mike managed to get a plant from the gardener for another £!. The gardener was saying that he was hoping that the cucumbers would still be producing when the Prince comes. He said there should be plenty of tomatoes and lettuce for him to eat !

After a calm crossing on the top of the Pentalina seeing lots of puffin and guillemots we arrived in St Margarets Hope and were greeted by Gary on his three wheeled bike who escorted us to the place we will be staying for the next two weeks.

We went to St Margarets hope just in time to grab a fish supper before the van drove away. We went down to Hoxa to eat them watching the seals and birds and then saw this otter. There is a story behind it wearing a tie but I'm not sure what it is now. I have seen pictures of it in a scarf and bow tie too. Hoping to see real ones sometime this holiday :)
