A quick detour to the centre of the Orkney World Heritage site

After a very productive meeting about the strategy for dating the Ness of Brodgar, Peter took the opportunity of a couple of free hours to jump on a bus and head out to see some of the sites that make-up the World Heritage Site. The light was fading but hopefully you can get an idea of the setting. A quick dash into Kirkwall on an open-topped tour bus that luckily left just enough time for one dram of Highland Park before leaving.
