When we were in Scotland earlier this summer, we visited the Orkney Islands, home to several Neolithic sites dating back some 5000 years. Standing stones, a reconstructed village and a burial chamber make up a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In addition, in the main town, there’s a very historic cathedral and burying ground, St Magnus Cathedral, dating from the 1100’s.
We posted Canongate Kirk and Burying Ground a while ago but I’ve recently learned of another interesting interment. Please see the updated version with The Skating Minister. (Scroll to the end please)
