When it was obvious that the talk was coming to an end I made sure I was first out so I didn't feel trapped in a line of people. It was freezing in the chamber, so was pleased to get back into the warm again. A quick visit to the usual visitor shop before heading over to the Ring of Brodgar, which has around 28 standing stones and is apparently one of the largest ...
