Lerwick to Aberdeen

Seal in Lerwick harbour.

My turn for a poor night’s sleep, getting chilled on Noss must have made me vulnerable to Rowan’s cold. Another leisurely start with a 10:00 departure, leaving our bags with the bikes in the hostel’s bike shed. We spent the day looking round the town, an unexpectedly sunny one given the forecast was the same as yesterday’s. We looked round Clickminin broch, walked around the Knabb and Da Setts and watched the seals in the harbour.

We collected our bikes and left them outside the restaurant where we had an early dinner at 17:00, not a great meal but better than the ferry.
