See you have been to my favourite places, they say Iron Age forts every half mile along this part of the coast. It is a bit scary round that missing centre, the cliff dropping away, especially on a windy day.
A real rarity... I'm struggling to think of an upland long cairn off the top of my head. Arguably it might be something to do with the small ridge it occupies... filling in the gaps between the contours.
Thanks Carl. That's two years running your and others' fieldnotes on here have come in handy for my holidays (Orkney and Shetland) :)
The museum is great. From ancient to modern. Lots of bronze age and iron age stuff, axes, arrowheads, bowls etc. I must admit though, the item that stopped me dead in my tracks was an early 1980's VCR - it was about the size of a Shetland pony!
Glad you had a good time on Shetland - although it's hard not to!
A good site to finish with. Gives a very good idea of how brochs would have looked. I didn't get chance to visit the museum.
A reason to re-visit then!
