|Second TuMP of the day with Jim Bloomer, Richard and Tricky Speirs on a sunny morning on Eday. Also visited a nearby chambered cairn. The Neolithic chambered cairn on Vinquoy Hill commands views across much of the Orkney archipelago. It measures approximately 17m in diameter and 2.5m in height and has an entrance passage leading to a central chamber with four small side-cells.||Dugswell2||28/05/2014|
