From the majestic soaring cliffs of Hoy to the intimacy of the Italian chapel at Lamb Holm, Orkney is a place of surprising and varied contrast. Witness to events of huge significance in the story of Scotland and Scandinavia, its venerable history stretches back to Viking times and a vigorous Celtic Church, before fading into an enticing world of myth and legend. In this book, acclaimed photographer Gunnie Moberg presents over a hundred views of Orkney that capture both the awesome natural beauty of the place and its remarkably rich heritage of buildings and monuments. All of them capture the islands' unique magical atmosphere, which still resonates today with the deeds of saints and warriors, fishermen and farmers.
