Knowe of Yarso
Another long cairn, with many internal chambers. High on the hillside above Frotoft, with splendid views across Eynhallow Sound to mainland Orkney. The tip of land just above the right-hand end of the cairn in this picture is Aikerness in Evie, on which sits the Broch of Gurness. Looking south west.
