Cherished solitude
Sep 06, 2017, 14:09
Today I read that the stoats on Rousay are to be culled because they are eating the eggs of ground nesting birds, well anything that destroys the beautiful song of the curlew is up for grabs - but sad for the stoat, why did they introduce the stoat though in 2010?

But something else that needs culling? tourists are becoming a problem in the Orkneys, from the large cruise ships that pull into Kirkwall, to the ordinary person wandering around. 'Costing the Earth' investigated on their programme, you can pick up the relevant piece from 13 minutes in. The Stones of Stenness are in the firing line, just like Stonehenge.

I suppose what I want to say is TMA the Rough Guide to the Megaliths?
