As some of you know, I’m somewhat of a Top Gun fan! To celebrate the launch of Top Gun Maverick, for one day only on Friday 20th May we have 4 very special “specials” You won’t need to request a fly-by for these as the pattern isn’t full, you will need great ball of fire to eat some of them and after the need for speed, you won’t be doing a 4G negative dive and we won’t have to kill you. As always, you can be our wing man any time - from 11-3 Monday to Friday + 5-8 on Thursday & Friday evenings!! ... See MoreSee Less

A trip to Sanday wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Heritage Centre and Croft. It’s situated on the outskirts of Lady Village. Located within Temperance Hall, the centre displays some of Sanday’s natural and man-made treasures and showcases some of the community’s history.

I thought I had a secret admirer whilst out walking the dogs, but alas not, it’s just the calls of the eider duck! The eider is the UK's heaviest and fastest flying duck. It is a true seaduck, rarely found away from coasts where its dependence on coastal molluscs for food has brought it into conflict with mussel farmers. Eiders are highly gregarious and usually stay close inshore, riding the swell in a sandy bay or strung out in long lines out beyond the breaking waves. It is an Amber List species because of its winter concentrations. They can be seen around all of Sanday’s coastline. ... See MoreSee Less

Here’s the third in our walks around Sanday series. This one takes in the stunning Whitemill Bay and surrounding farmland. Park at the end of the road and follow the route clockwise or anti-clockwise. You’ll need a decent pair of boots and don’t forget your binoculars and camera as it’s a great wildlife spotting area. Stick to the tracks and dogs under control at all times as you’re passing through working farms. This one’s only 4.5km and took a leisurely hour. As you're so close, obviously you can call in for tea and cakes, or a pizza when you're finished!! ... See MoreSee Less

Butter first then jam then cream. Refuse to sell them to anyone who doesn’t do it that way 😂😂

Jam first then cream on top😋

It's cream then jam on top x x impressed your using clotted cream, that's the first time I've seen that here x x

Just looked it up. A Devon cream tea is scone, then cream, then jam. (Also London and South East). A Cornish one is scone, then jam, then clotted cream. A Yorkshire. savoury scone is cheese scone, cottage cheese then chutney (I had one in Betty’s Tearoom in York.)

Not wanting to be a nerd about this (spoiler: I'm a nerd), there's a scientific paper out there about this very subject! Typically can't lay my hands on it right now, but it's jam then cream (the Cornish way) which is best and it's something to do with the way the cream reacts to the underlay of jam or something like that. Sorry that's really vague 🤣🤦‍♀️

I put cream on and it stops the jam sliding off. NOT clotted cream though.

Who the hell cares, tastes amazing any which way 😋😂🤣

Can’t wait till we can get up!! X

Butter then jam give the cream to the next table🤣

Yeah.. Jam then cream!

Mmmmmmm!!!!

On my way!!!!🏃‍♀️x

Do you know why we chose 59° North as our business name?

I’ve always loved maps and mapping and having spent time using them from a young age in the Scouts and more recently as a search and rescue dog handler down south, our northerly location had to play a part! The 59th parallel is a circle of latitude that is 59 degrees north of the Earth's equatorial plane. It crosses many time zones in Europe, Asia, the Pacific Ocean, North America and the Atlantic Ocean.

Here’s the second in our little walks around Sanday series. This one is a circular walk right from our doorstep. It’s about 5km and took us about an hour. Part of it is on roads and through a working farm, so make sure dogs are on leads. It’ll take you over some rough farm tracks too, so decent footwear is needed! You’ll see Scar, which would have been a stunning house in its day. The stone o scar, a 14 tonne block of stone shrouded in folklore, the Burness Kirkyard and Mill Brae Tower on the hill opposite, which was formerly the site of a windmill. You can add an short extension out to the site of a Viking boat burial, look out for the map on the right up past the Kirk. ... See MoreSee Less

It’s been a beautiful day in Sanday today, so we took a late afternoon circular walk around Kettletoft & Backaskaill Bay. We parked at Kettletoft post office and headed out around Bea Ness towards Backaskaill Bay along the well trodden grass path. After a short stop to spot the wildlife, we headed right through the gap in the dunes up to the Cross Kirkyard. We went in to see the burial place of Walter Traill Dennison (1825-1894), the famous folklorist who recorded most of the information available about traditional tales told in Orkney. Following the track up to How Farm, we turned right and followed the road back down into Kettletoft. It’s a very leisurely walk, took us an hour and is around 4km. ... See MoreSee Less

After a short stop to spot the wildlife, we headed right through the gap in the dunes up to the Cross Kirkyard. We went in to see the burial place of Walter Traill Dennison (1825-1894), the famous folklorist who recorded most of the information available about traditional tales told in Orkney. Following the track up to How Farm, we turned right and followed the road back down into Kettletoft. It’s a very leisurely walk, took us an hour and is around 4km.

There’s a really low tide in Sanday tonight at around 5:30pm, so you’ll be able to get out and walk right around the B98 destroyer wreck at Lopness. It’s an amazing thing to go and explore!

I love how this tiny strip of land keeps the sea separated from Roos Loch. It's now a little narrower in places after the storms earlier this year and I wonder how long until the sea does break through? ... See MoreSee Less

Looking at the cover, can't you see how good the kettletoft store and garage could look, with its arches put back, stone restored and decent windows, it's so sad to see it as it is.
