he palace is a beautifully preserved bit of history which is sitting imposingly in the unassuming settlement of Birsay. In its time it was the seat of power for Orcadian nobles, but today it is a surprisingly large monument in this relatively remote part of Mainland Orkney. It is free to go in, so why not stop and take a look. It is really impressive from the main road at sunset (in March), as the sun sets over the sea behind the Palace. It is al ovely walk from here to the point opposite the Brough of Birsay, and at low tide there are fossils to be seen on the nearby beach.
