Ring of Brodgar, Orkney Islands, Scotland

The Ring of Brodgar is part of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site, a group of Neolithic monuments found on the Orkney Islands, Scotland.  The Ring is the third largest stone circle in the British Isles, and 27 of the original 60(ish) stones remain standing.

Due to the practicalities of our schedule, we could only do a day trip to Orkney (with John O’Groat’s Ferries).  It was an excellent tour (and I don’t normally like organised tours), but if you have the time I’d highly recommend spending a few days exploring all the fascinating sites properly.

  1. You had a beautiful day for shooting in this location. The sky is dramatic enough for the subject in the foreground. Great shot.

  2. Lovely photo. You did well to capture a sense of Orkney in a day. We were there a couple of years ago for a week and definitely want to go back for longer – there’s just so much to see and do. We only scratched the surface of the Mainland and Hoy – next time, North Ronaldsay, for sure!
