Orkneys Reports

County Review by cyril seatter on December 22nd, 2010
having been born and bred in Orkney,and an original norwegian surname (Saetter. with a and e joined) i feel that i should mention that that name "Orkney" is plural,and refers to all the islands. therefor it is not fitting to talk about "The Orkneys". Just thought i would mention it as most people don't know :)
