Walked around the Cathedral during a wee visit to Kirkwall. Surprised it didn't have a CBM.

Stunning Spire of Red and white sandstone. Even better with the poppies flowing from the window. See our Photo

Kirkwall was the first stop-off on a cruise from Leith around Iceland so the cathedral was a must-do. A very interesting building and some poignant memorials. The spire is surmounted by a weather vane.
