  1. Together with members of my family I will visit the Islands in June 2015 in order to pay tribute to my late uncle James Connelly who perished in 1934 when the Trawler Leicestershire foundered off the South coast of Hoy.

    I have photographs of the monument erected by the Islanders in memory of the crew and would be obliges if you would confirm whether it is still available to see.

    We look forward to visiting the museums on our visit.

    Kind regards

  2. We are coming to Lyness this Saturday 20 May, arriving on the ferry at 10.25. We would like to visit South Walls where my wife’s family used to live. Would you have a taxi available for 4 adults to take us there and back, and possibly a more wide-ranging tour of parts of South Walls and Hoy? I will be flying up today but will look out for a reply. Many thanks, Nick
