Perfectly put. It's the message thats going out from here that's so unfortunate. It stinks. Standing up for rules has been labelled hateful dogmatism and the sneakers-in have even been wished luck in what they do!

Well, good luck to the millions who keep quiet, pay the entrance fees, keep to the rules, and think sneaking in at night is just wrong and tatty.

I agree Rhiannon's post is impassioned and persuasive ... I applaud it. Was going to answer her post directly but thought it was better to leave it as the 'last word'. My own post last night saying "good luck to anyone making a clandestine visit ... " was said with a certain amount of irony. The majority of visitors who go to Skara Brae are taken by a guide for a limited period - the relatively few people who are prepared to travel up to Orkney, stay on the island, then go out when no one else is around to make a private visit cannot be that great in number.

Silbury is really quite a different site as its in the over populated south, an hour or so from the capital city. This thread was first and foremost about Silbury.
