About Me

My name is Patricia Long, nee Leith, and I live in Stenness, in the heart of the West Mainland of Orkney and on the edge of our UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Heart of Neolithic Orkney.

The Leith family settled in the area in 1546 but other branches of the family have been in the area for so long that some of my ancestors almost certainly helped to erect the Ring of Brodgar and Maeshowe.

I grew up on a small farm, in a family well known for its knowledge of Orkney history. Now I carry on that tradition and bring a new dimension by using the internet, along with the local archives, to find new stories of Orkney's achievements in the wider world.

Orkney is still a thriving and lively community and I look forward to sharing our unique mix of past and present with you.
