There are virgin olive oils, balsamic vinegar, local vegetables and sometimes even a pineapple in the local shops. There’s just one thing missing. One thing which I begin to hallucinate about. One thing that I miss. One thing that I always make a bee-line for in the supermarket on mainland Orkney; soft fruit.
I’m in Tullochs, one of the three shops on Westray and there they are; raspberries! I have contain a yelp of excitement as I put them carefully in my basket.
One more reason to love the Island.
