  • To visit the island Bersej must, of course, follow the calendar of tidal/tidal, because at low tide to get to it is a simple, Ford is an easy way to walk. Everywhere, it was stated that for visiting Broch must pay, but we never found anyone and where nary a person on the island was not, there is a lodge with an ad for those stuck on it in a rush, or bad weather, but it's also not a soul. Thought maybe some box stands for money, but have not seen it. If you are going to visit Skara Bray, then recommend possible first examine Bersej and later Skara Bray (still the last village is much steeper, it is not necessary to lubricate itself impressions), but in any case I advise you to go to both, because they are different, hence, for example, wonderful views of the cliffs.
