The charming lady in charge of the entrance kiosk provided us with a great into to the joint ticket attraction to the Earl's and Bishop's Palaces. They adjoin each other and are just round the corner from St Magnus Cathedral. Both buildings provide good vantage points for pictures of the cathedral by the way. Both are definitle ruins but worthy of a visit and consideration of the history behind them. Plenty of spiral staircases to enjoy - if they are your thing! As part of an overall visit to Kirkwall, perhaps with the museum and cathedral, all of which are close together, we recommend spending half a day.
