St Magnus Cathedral: (Orkney)
The Cathedral which is the town's most appealing site, originally started construction in the Norman style but ended up more gothic than anything else. Named after Magnus Erlendsson who was killed in 1115, the Cathedral is now his final resting place. The column where he is buried was once a site of pilgrimage said to possess divine powers. Open Monday to Saturday, admission is free and Sunday Service is at 11.15am.

In Liddle Farm, Isbister you will find this 5000 year old burial chamber.

Open April to October and November to March, tickets cost £2.00/£2.50.
