... country singer, but our host, Dan (I thought he said Don, but the sign on the door said Dan and Dolina). He led us inside, where we were greeted by his wife Dolina. Dolina was up for a bit of a chat, but I struggled. I don't recall this problem when I first visited the country in 2011, but this Aussie lass is having a great deal of trouble understanding the thick Scottish accent.

It has been a pretty amazing experience to see and touch the work of people who lived 5,000 years ago.

... booking back in Kirkwall, on the far side of the island, for 7pm which we wanted to be on time for as the lady who had taken my booking had said there was a party of twelve booked for 7:30pm. But on the north western corner of the island is another Brough, Birsay, which is famous for being the one that is on an island cut off by the rising tide, and our neckless friend had told us that the tide would be out from about 5pm to 9pm. So we thought we would at least ...
