You always find gold at the end of the rainbow. A windswept day at the Brough of Birsay.

My two guests from Boston USA watching the waves crash in at the Brough of Birsay. Hopefully I managed to show them just a little of what makes Orkney Great.

We managed to miss most of the rain, if not the wind. Tried my new tour about 5000 years of living on Orkney. Still needs a little work to get it right.

One of the guests has had a DNA analysis done and she is 25% Scandinavian followed strongly by Orcadian. I hope she got a glimpse of how her ancestors here may have lived. Certainly Kirbuster museum, with its wonderful warm and smokey peat fire, and equally as good custodian, created an experience of all the senses.
