Beer & Cairns, Oh My!

There's a gentleman I met via the now defunct Orkneyjar email list. He lives in Stronsay and has an interesting post up about Neolithic beer making. and via that post, I see that probably my favourite place in Orkney, the Tomb of the Eagles, now has a nifty website! This is a privately owned Isbister chambered Cairn, and the couple that own the farm it's on are delightful! And the crawl in on your hands and knees is quite something! You can take a look at it here. It's one of those places I really want to visit again some day!
