#1: The confluence in this field

(visited by Christopher Anton)

29-Aug-2021 -- First time in a while since I've done one of these. Passed close by here on a one day coach tour of Orkney 10 years ago but this time here on holiday. Ultimately not successful but as I wasn't sure if there was a bull in the field and not wanting to worry any sheep I approached from the neighbouring field which was empty and the closest I could get was 155 metres. The wind turbine is new since the last visit here. Took the necessary photos and made the way back to the road through the thankfully dry road. Went to Wideford Hill chambered tomb next as suggested by an earlier visitor here.
