The Tomb of the Eagles
It’s a stunning day on Mainland Orkney and there’s plenty of time for a trip to The Tomb of the Eagles. The Isbister Chambered Cairn is perched just above dramatic South Ronaldsay cliffs and is yet another of Orkney’s top archaeological sites. A local farmer called Ronnie Simison discovered the Stone Age tomb by chance in the 1950s and it contained an amazing collection of bones and artefacts from 5,000 years ago. Time to stare out to sea at the same view they had in the Neolithic, apart from the fence posts.
