      ... 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.
