Sanday: inside Quoyness chambered cairn
The interior of HY6737 : Sanday: Quoyness chambered cairn is this narrow but tall - 12 feet or so - central chamber; the light is artificial thanks to a modern skylight in the roof.

As well as the entrance tunnel (bottom left), there are six further chambers accessed by low openings.
