Burrian (Corrigall)



To reach this site go along the main Kirkwall-Stomness road until you reach the Harray junction, turn up towards Dounby and the follow the directions for Corrigall Farm Museum on the east side of the road. The farmroad is very long and windy. At the museum you can see the mound just a little behind the the farmyard itself, to the right of a broad steep track going up the ways. Unfortunately the persistent rain tipping down prevented my approach to any nearer than the fieldgate beween the museum and the farmhouse (and my brother that drove me is not even into mounds, never mind a brochaholic, so wouldn't stay), but if you have transport it is well worth a visit if ruinous mounds are your thing. Best ask at Corrigall Farm Museum or the farmhouse for permission I think. wideford Posted by wideford
