Broch of Gurness, Orkney Islands

Broch of Gurness in Orkney is one of the many sites that we visited when we were there in June 2017. When we went there early one morning the man in charge of the place was just about to shut it and go home as he didn’t think that anyone would brave the terrible weather, it was a howling gale. I’m really glad that we experienced it like that though as as soon as we got into the shelter of the broch it was so calm and quiet, and we had the place to ourselves.

Jack has done a couple of posts about it and if you’re interested in seeing more photos of the place have a look here and here.

    • Joan,
      I think all those places are very atmospheric and I can just imagine what they must have been like when they were in use and had people living there.
