We were just driving along a very skinny road when we noticed a signpost saying Kitchener Memorial at Marwick Head, Orkney. Obviously we knew that Kitchener had drowned not long after the beginning of World War 1 when the ship he was on, HMS Hampshire, hit a German mine, but we had no idea it happened just off Marwick Head. This massive tower was built in his memory.
A view of the Kitchener Memorial at Marwick Head, Orkney.
Marwick Head is absolutely awash with rabbits as you can see, they aren’t at all bothered by humans it seems.
It’s a long way down and it was windy so I wasn’t going to go too close to the edge, some people are thrill seekers though.
It’s a beautiful area and there’s a lovely cliff path if you fancy a long walk. If you click on the photos you can zoom in to enlarge them.
