I took this somewhere in Orkney but can't remember where. Can anyone enlighten me, please. From the same strip of negs as the Boats and Sigurd.

Hi, Tom. To the top left of your photo is the track leading up to the Brough of Deerness.

Could it be the Brough of Dearness?

I think is the Brough of Deerness, out past the Gloup.

The Brough of Deerness Tom. You can just see, at the top left of the pic, the narrow footpath that leads up to the remains of the chapel on the brough's grassy top. Nice shot!

Its the Broch of Deerness i think.

This picture looks like the small inlet next to the Brough in Deerness.

It looks like the broch of Dearness- we went there 2 weeks ago and took photos that look similar.

Thanks folks, I am sure you are right as I did visit the Brough of Deerness on that holiday.
