Exploring Orkney with a celebrated story-teller

Here's Our  Hero at the Broch of Borwick in Orkney, shortly after a visit to the Brough of Bigging. Both initial B-words are pronounced the same, but the Broch is an iron-age round tower, while the Brough is a fortified headland difficult of access. I say these things on the authority of our expert guide,
Tom Muir, the celebrated Orcadian historian and story-teller, who doubles as a host par excellence and supplier of 18-year-old Highland Park. He has a fondness for field mushrooms, and Sheena Fraser McGoogan was wielding the camera.
