We really enjoyed this guided tour. One of us is knowledgeable about artillery, the other (me) isn't but we both thought it great. The setting is fantastic. We walked out from Stromness- an easy flat walk of about 40 minutes through town and along the coast. Worth doing in its own right. Our guide, Andy, made the visit interesting from the start. He has the skill of bringing the site to life with enough information but also some human interest stories. His passion for the site is evident and infectious. He is well equipped with interesting old photos of the site but never goes on too long. The final part of the visit in the old mess hut was astonishing and something I know I will remember, think about and talk about. This is well worth doing even if you are not a military enthusiast. Easy to follow instructions on the website and Andy is very responsive to texts to confirm visit times.
