Earls Palace in Birsay

ruin orkneyThe first Earl of Orkney, Robert Stewart, seems to have been in need in more than one palace. Here are the ruins of his palace in Birsay, north on the mainland. If you ever visit, don’t forget to walk across to the small island with a very old settlement, long before the vikings arrived. Remember that the tide covers the walkway across when it is high.
