Maes Howe webcam

Maes Howe is a neolithic monument built in in Orkney, about 5,000 years ago, and now it has a webcam. At midday on the winter solstice, the chamber is flooded with light. For me, this exerts the same fascination as Stonhenge and now I'm investigating all things Orkney. Maes Howe and nearby monuments are part of the Orkney UNESCO World Heritage site.

For more information on Orkney, I suggest starting with Orkneyjar, a site built by by Sigurd Towrie.

I totally want to use this web cam, but I seem to only choose times when it's extremely dark. :)
