Caption

The ring of Bookan is about a mile North West of the Ring of Brodgar.

The Ring of Bookan has no standing stones but is an oval mound surrounded by a ditch roughly 2m deep, 13m wide and 40m in diameter. It is not clear what the ring was for, there is roughly as many theories as archaeologists.

When I took the pictures for this panorama broken cloud was being driven across the sky and the light was changing quite a lot, that gives an interesting effect as some parts of the panorama are noticeably darker than others.
