Broch of Gurness, Orkney: 6 reviews and 10 photos

  The Brock and the Strait
by shivan

I decided to publish this picture to give an idea on how well the Brock of Gurness has been positioned to dominate the Eynhallow Sound.
The island in the distance (thanks for the sun that was shining so brightly that day) is the Isle of Rousay, that hosts the other more relevant brock of a series of eleven whose remnants have been found in the area.
