It was a warm day in the land of ice and fire.
The sun was shining, hills emerald green, midsummer and snow on the mountains! Such a picturesque setting.
We took one last look around the town and headed off to sea!
Reyn is the old part of town with the turf-covered roofs.
A hamlet in the middle of nowhere. It looks like a relic from a bygone age.

Out in the middle of nowhere, among the sombre mountains, waterfalls and ominous skies, by the side of a cove, lies the small village of Saxsum. It consists of a scattering of turfed cottages and a church in a glorious setting.
Driving through the mountains and hills, with their scattered communities, or single dwellings, one is struck by the loneliness and beautiful bleakness of the place. It is incredibly picturesque.

We teamed up with a few others and went looking for transport!
We found painted houses, more turf roofs and some art!
Walking around the picturesque town with its turf-covered roofs.
Turf-roofed houses and colour! Sombre clouds and drizzle. Very picturesque and foreboding.
