This is part of an ongoing set on Jarlshof….
Jarlshof is the best known prehistoric archaeological site in the Shetland Isles north of Scotland.
It lies near the southern tip of the Shetland Mainland at Sumburgh, and has been described as “one of the most remarkable archaeological sites ever excavated in the British Isles”.
It contains remains dating from 2500 BC up to the 17th century AD.

This location is directly outside the Sumburgh Hotel which was our accommodation for our stay in the Shetlands. And what a place it was…
The ruins of the original Lairds House lye directly above the diggings.
