HY2319 : Bay of Skaill, Orkney

near to Aith, Orkney Islands, Great Britain

Bay of Skaill, Orkney
Bay of Skaill, Orkney
Taken across Skaill Bay, this shows the home Farm for Skaill House (in HY2318) - with the edge of Skara Brae on the RH edge of the far side of the bay. 40 years ago, the edge of the bay would have been level with the right-most steading - the Atlantic gales have taken the rest. This is looking South.
