The Dwarfie Stane

Chambered Tomb


The most impressive approach to any of the sites we visited.

The island of Hoy were the tomb lies, is in itself a very desolate place, few houses few farms, and even fewer people.

Used by the British Navy during the war left the island with many wartime points of interest.

The Dwarfie Staine is to the more remote part north of the island, and lies between a huge valley made by the two main hills on the island.

You can reach it by car and then walk 1/3 mile up to the stone. It's an amazing place. Follow the B9047 north (it's the only road there) and watch for the sign as you approach the Bay of Quoys. Stop off an take a look at Betty Corrigall's grave on the way.
