    First stop Clava Cairns. A set of prehistoric stone burial circles dating from 3000-4000BC, set in a beautiful beech grove. Two passage graves, a ring cairn and a kerb cairn, with several circles of standing stones. Peaceful in the sunny damp morning air before the first tourist bus arrived.

    OK so here is a quick update from the last post.

Sea levels are rising in the area and may cover Skara Brae eventually – they’ve tried a seawall and a number of other things but none are working. The houses – under the ground – all have two stone bed areas, a kind of mantle, a fire square in the middle and a ...

    ... and the pyramids. It was a sight to walk up to the Stones of Stenness, one group of stones and see sheep grazing at the feet of the slabs and we just joined in with them. sheep are funny, they do their sheepish grazing then all at once look up in one direction and stand perfectly still transfixed on something we can't see or hear - then the spell is broken and they go back to munching.
