This burn runs through the village at Birsay. The day I was there, sand martins were flitting over the water.
The village is small, it has a local shop/post office, plus petrol pumps, a kirk, artist's gallery just outside the village and a tea room. What more is needed!
The important bit - coffee cake and tea. At Birsay Bay Tea Rooms. Even before Covid regulations it was necessary to book as it was so popular!
Love their lighting too - and the decor...
