Chicken House, Cava

This is the former chicken house, on the shore just below, Muckle House, Cava. It had a bed and a cupboard and was used by Meg and Ida as their guest room. Prem Fojtu (pictured) and I stayed overnight on Cava in June 2015. From the state of this building we judged one more good Orkney gale this coming winter will finish it.

Hi Richard, did you get any other photos of the island? My great grandmother is from the island and it would be great if you managed to stumble upon her old cottage?
