Earl's Palace, Birsay, 1962

Alan sends in this picture taken by his father in law, Andy Wylie.
Here we see the Earl's Palace and a road to the Point of Buckquoy that looks as ruinous as the palace itself. On the road is a Hillman, registration HRG 744, that we will see more and more of in the pictures that are added in the near future- is this Andy's car I speculate?
