I love that connect to our roots. Our ancestors walked these hills and carried out their ceremonies. Ceremony and community is important to human beings. I am a humanistic antitheist but I still relish the connection to our past.

Standing Stones of Stennes, The Ring of Brodgar, Skara Brae and the Broch of Gurness are some of the wonders.

This is the Italian Chapel – an old hut which Italian prisoners of war took over and painted to create a beautiful chapel. The colours, 3D effect and carvings were incredible.
