A Tour of Some Interesting Sites on Orkney

Whilst researching the book Uriel's Machine, Robert spent quite some time on Orkney. Orkney is rich in Megalithic sites and whilst he was studying the Grooved Ware People, Robert also collected many images of their magnificent stone buildings, far too many to include in the book. Here are a selection of photographs of many of the sites mentioned in Uriel's Machine. If you click on any photograph you will get a full size view.

Some of the items let you stand in the centre of the site and view the 360 degree panorama of the horizon.
