Walking the Broch of Gurness, Orkney

The only thing better than the sites on Orkney is walking to them. Here’s an early morning last September, walking to the Iron Age village, Broch of Gurness. Starting at Evie Primary School, down long roads of heather and noisy cows, around to the Sands of Evie and Eynhallow Sound, and finally to the broch. We arrived before it even opened, and so had the place to ourselves for a good hour or more.
