Orkney Islands

... and safety. It had started to rain so we walked out to the ruins first before visiting the house and visitor center. We walked around the ruins reading the placards for awhile. We then went over to Skaill House. It was the house's property on which Skra Brae is located.

There used to be 365 steps, one for each day of the year, but some have been vandalised so there are a few less these days. The steps were built to bring herring up from the boats.
