    ... connection, as these places / settlements are 5000 years old (and being visited by bus loads of tourists daily) the records are not that well kept.

    Before going out, though, we found and booked both dinner and a bed for the night - at a hotel in Kirkwall with rather mixed reviews but beggars can't be choosers. It was only available for one night, and ...
