Brough of Birsay
This interesting view includes the main east - west track between the lighthouse and the visitor's centre which is the prominent building. The rocky, low lying area is Brough Sounds and the pedestrian causeway which is uncovered at low tide is centre right of the photograph. Beyond that the land rises to the Point of Buquoy and the first inlet is Skipi Geo. The skyline centre left of the photograph is named as "Skeres Naquer" on OS maps.
