Looking for Smiddy Banks, Deerness
Hello community, I am an Aussie visiting Scotland in April and would love to visit the home of my grandfather, who immigrated to Australia in the 1920's. I have found his drivers licence from 1922 when he was 22 and he states his address as Smiddy Banks, Deerness, Orkney , Scotland. I have tried google maps and other sites but can only find a Smiddy Banks farm near St Margaret's Hope.
Can anyone help? I don't know if this is/was a road, farm, region or pub! And perhaps this place no longer exists but any assistance would be greatly appreciated, thanks, helen
