Tour to Oakney in Scotland

 Hello from Scotland! This is the Ring of Brodgar in north Orkney. We took a bus and then a ferry across the ocean to this place. Stones are in a perfect circle, and like Stonehenge in England, no one knows for sure why this was done.

The picture below is at Skara Brae, also in Orkney. This village was discovered when a giant storm uncovered the ancient stone houses. They are not sure why it was abandoned or where the people went. They did not even know it was there until around the 1980s. We saw how they lived surrounded by stone. Everything is stone here in Scotland, even today, and everywhere you look is ancient history.
