  • A puffin watching over its burrow.

  • A local shop for local people - and tourists - on Mykines. Note the Tunnock's caramel wafer box at the bottom; I've seen them in various shops in the Faroes, clearly a very successful Scottish export ( I always bring a pack with me when travelling, as they're very filling. In this case there was no need)

  • The main - in fact, only - airport in the Faroes. The approach was quite scary - we seemed to fly very close to mountains shrouded in clouds and fog. Fog in summer causes a lot of problems here; earlier in the week a football team from Montenegro got stuck in the airport for hours after fog closed in. The original airport was actually built by the British army when they occupied the islands during World War 2 (after Denmark fell to the Germans).

  • Chickens roaming freely.

  • We had lunch in Gjógv - the meatball was particularly delicious (“I save that for last”, said Karl, the tour guide. “It’s like the dessert“). Though he then added that the KitKat was the actual dessert.

  • A rainbow as we sailed back to the mainland. The Faroes are absolutely beautiful. I'll definitely be back - and praying for better weather! And one final tip: if you're flying back from here, and have just bought something nice in Duty Free - a traditional Faroese jumper, perhaps - don't go though the door right beside the till. That takes you into Arrivals and you have to go through security again. Not that I would ever do anything so stupid :)

  • Beautiful view of Nolsoy and the mainland beyond.

  • I got quite worried that the weather across the way was coming my direction - I was halfway up a mountain, with no cover - but thankfully it never did.

  • It was pouring down on the mainland across the water.

  • Two keels.

  • A pretty display in the window of one of the houses in Nolsoy.

  • The church in the village.

  • My final day and the best weather of the week! This is the pretty village on the island of Nolsoy, just 20 minutes by ferry from Torshavn. The white arch is made from whale bones.

  • This sheep was trying to stare me down.

  • Geronimo! This is actually a puffin coming in to land. Someone who saw the picture said it looked like the puffin was bouncing on a trampoline, and I can't get that image out of my head now!

  • They look like they shouldn’t be able to fly, but they can. There were dozens of them swooping back and forward.

  • They really are quite beautiful birds. Though I must admit I ate one in a restaurant in Reykjavik a few years ago.

  • Hiking to the lighthouse on Mykines. When I started out it was overcast but clear. Half way to the lighthouse thick fog and heavy rain had set in, and I could hardly see anything. It was a bit scary! The lighthouse wasn’t visible until I was right beside it. Coming back was frightening - with the rain and fog all I could see were the yellow stakes marking the path, and I knew there were sheer cliffs all around. The path was also incredibly muddy; I fell several times, counting my blessings every time I was able to get up, uninjured. I got back to the village cold, wet but very relieved.

  • Coming in to land. Puffin burrows were all over this area, some practically under the muddy path marking the trail. Stepping away from the path was dangerous, as you could easily twist your ankle in one of the holes.

  • Spotted! Mykines is famous for its puffins, and there were hundreds of them here when I visited.

  • Sea and sky starting to merge.

  • On a memorial to Mykines men lost at sea; in 1934 nine men from the village drowned when the trawler Neptun sank in a collision with another boat.

  • These two had the right idea: the weather was about to become quite treacherous.
