I'm getting bored with the Shetland posts now - time to move on. We visited a lot more sites over the last 2 days of the trip so here is a whistle stop tour and I promise something different for next week!
Firstly then the Giants Grave and tomb
Nicely weathered pink granite standing stone. Fairly accessible being close to the road but set in a very boggy piece of ground....
This is the burial tomb- now almost completely collapsed and resembling a pile of tinned pink salmon. ( well it does - sorry)
and a little further inland.
and finally the obligatory broch. Nicely situated this one, right on the banks of a small loch. Unlike many it has a fairly sheltered position, the surrounding undulating headland would deflect much of the wind.
Lastly a random standing stone - don't ask me where this is. It seems to have lost its tags. If anyone recognises please let me know
