Ring Of Brodgar, Inverness Reviews
Ahhhh. A must see. Do a little reading before you visit this beautiful place. If you go early in the morning or late afternoon you will usually be alone or with only a couple of visitors. Take a picnic and enjoy the surrounding area.
Another Ring of Stones in the British Isles. It must have been a cultural thing all those centuries ago to build these monuments. It is certainly a labour of dedication for man to transport and then erect these stones. Secondly, what is the purpose of the stones in this position? Certainly, visiting these stones gives an air of peace and tranquillity. There were not many people visiting at the same time.
Impressive! Well worth a visit. This time only the outer path was open. The inner path reveals the true majesty of this Neolithic monument.
Not much to see or do here other than park up and follow the short, circular route around the stones but even that is cool enough, given the history, to warrant a brief visit on a tour around the island. About 30-45 minutes should be more than enough for most people. A couple of information boards detailing the history of the site as you walk around would make a welcome addition.
Wonderful Neolithic site near Kirkwall on Orkney. Easy bus ride from Kirkwall. Great all day, but sunset was a special treat.
