Greetings – we’ve been traveling again so you haven’t heard from us in a while. But we continue to visit beautiful cemeteries whenever we can.
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)
