Ness of Brodgar summer tours at the dig

Looks like they'll be operating tours during this summers archaelogical dig at Ness of Brodgar. Catch it if you can and take a woolly hat. They have you stand on a platform so you can properly survey the large site and its very windy! The Tourist Visitor Centre should have the information on tour times nearer the time.

Also PLEASE remember to give a generous donation to the dig funds when you visit the site. You can even sponsor you own section of the dig for just £10 when you are there.

It costs thousands of pounds each year to undertake these vitally important excavation works.

Absolutely Orkneypat. I forgot to say they don't charge anything but appreciate donations. The tour and talk is fab. Give generously!

I have the dates when the dig will be 'open' down as July 17th to 21st August and it really is well worth a visit!
