|A Bicycle Trip to Shetland and Orkney Isles July 2002||dansk|
Tuesday 2 July 2002
Departure from Copenhagen Airport in the morning with change at Heathrow for Aberdeen which we reach at 4 in the afternoon.

So we book for tonight to Lerwick, from Lerwick to Kirkwall on Orkney on the 10th (day trip) and from Kirkwall back to Aberdeen with a berth on the 17th, paying all in all around £350, bikes included.
