Tomb of the Eagles.
These sea cliffs are found at the southern end of south Ronaldsay. The Tomb of the Eagles is the name of the tourist attraction found in the field behind the big flat wall. For more information try Tomb of the Eagles. On visiting these crags please be considerate to the owners of the Tomb as this is a small family run business. It would be diplomatic, and educational, if visiting for the first time to pay for the tour of the tomb. It's a small sum and tour end's on top of the big flat wall!
