HY4811 : Holland

taken 12 years ago, near to Berstane, Orkney Islands, Great Britain

The cottage of Holland a few miles east of Kirkwall. Head of Holland behind in sunshine with man made spoil heap from little quarry just beyond.
Presumably Holland just means high land (though not in this case!) - there are numerous dwellings called Holland in the Orkney Isles - and are usually at or near the high point of the relevant island - Papa Westray LinkExternal link and North Ronaldsay LinkExternal link being examples.
