Orkney in a time of giants!

One of my favourite online blogs is that from up north, entitled Orkney Archives - Get Dusty. It has a healthy irreverence and humour in many of its posts. The latest concerns a beautiful map of Kirkwall from 1766 by Sir Laurence Dundas, which the blogger has concluded depicts the town "in the time of giants or really peedie hooses and ships...".

View the map and post at http://orkneyarchive.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/in-time-of-giants.html - then maybe explore some of its other previous posts!
