The Foveran, St Ola, Orkney, 19 July 2021

Breakfast buffets have sadly not returned, at least not to Britain. Still, today is ‘Freedom Day’ (at least in England and who knows for how long?), so I’m hoping for the best. Meanwhile, in this really lovely hotel (a ‘restaurant with rooms’, actually), breakfast offers a fair choice of warm and cold dishes, competently prepared. Nothing spectacular, perhaps, but perfectly decent and starts you off well for a day of sightseeing. 5/10.
