Orkney Firms Step in to Prevent Visitors' Disappointment
A charming couple had flown half-way around the world to Orkney, only to find their holiday plans blighted by a technology mishap that left them without the facility of their planned car hire.
Our thanks to Stan Groundwater of Pure Orkney for giving up his planned day off at extremely short notice and for instantly creating a memorable tour for them.
Our thanks also to Alex at Causeway cars for the contribution of his efficient service.
Naturally we did everything possible to compensate for the disappointment including this special four course breakfast.
