Skara Brae a Honeymoon View

Skara Brae a Honeymoon View

Three posts in March and only one April is hardly prolific blogging but I had a really good excuse – I got married earlier this month which you have probably worked out from the title. We had a very low key wedding as simple as we could make it, then dashed off to Orkney for a week. So I am afraid you will have to suffer a few Orkney views as I try to get back in to the swing of blogging. Many thanks for the positive response to my last sunset post I am glad you liked it.

Skara Brae /ˈskærə ˈbr/ is a stone-built Neolithic settlement, located on the Bay of Skaill on the west coast of Mainland, the largest island in the Orkney archipelago of Scotland. It consists of eight clustered houses, and was occupied from roughly 3180 BCE2500 BCE. Europe’s most complete Neolithic village, Skara Brae gained UNESCO World Heritage Site status as one of four sites making up “The Heart of Neolithic Orkney.”aOlder than Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids, it has been called the “Scottish Pompeii” because of its excellent preservation.[1] (Wikipedia)

  1. Congratulations Scott! What a wonderful place to spend your honeymoon. Commentators questioning taking your camera along clearly aren’t photographers! 😀 wishing you both a very happy future together!

  2. Best wishes and congratulations to the both of you! Best excuse I’ve heard yet for neglecting the blogging! 😀

  3. Very best wishes to you both. RH (my wife has declined the offer of a trip to Orkney on the unusual pretext that “there are no trees there”. If you happened to notice a few can you let me know!)

  4. Congratulations Scott ! Forgive me for saying this, but I can’t believe you talked your new wife into staying at Skara Brae. The beds must be hard as rock!

  5. Congratulations. Wishing you many years of joy and happiness.
    Skara Brae… what fascinating history – if walls could talk 🙂

  6. Congratulations to you both and what a great place to go! If you haven’t been there before I’m sure it will whet your taste for the Orkneys and the Shetlands.
