Captivating tour with Glen and unmissable . The story of the site , the pre-WW1 history through WW1 and WW2 and the life and times of Joe Cload who lived here are engrossing and amazing at the same time.
Glen has immersed himself in the history of the site and in Joe Cload's life - his recollection of discussions woth Joe are enthralling. We loved it.

I had thought it would be a cursory and slightly disappointing 30 minutes but it turned out to be an utterly fascinating two hours. You can walk around bits by yourself but don't. Glen is one of those people who is utterly obsessed with his subject and researches and researches, but like the one excellent teacher we all remember from school, he is able to effortlessly communicate his interest and excitement and to bring it to life.

The barracks, the gentleman who owned the place (and that is a fantastic story in itself), living in the barracks, the international political setting, ballistics and defensive architecture, human nature/frailty etc, etc were all raised and explored where relevant. Glen clearly was a master of a range of subjects. I couldn't fault him even on the areas I know quite a lot about. The depth and breadth of his knowledge made his presentation real and gripping.

I ticked 1-2 hours but that is for people with no previous knowledge or interest. If you are into history and know a bit, then add an hour. It is worth making the time for this even on just a day trip to Hoy.

We did The Dwarfie Stane, Rackwick beach (assiduously), had lunch, then the Martello Tower and finally the Scapa Flow Museum. I'm sure The Old Man of Hoy is worth seeing but even if I was rather younger, it would have taken too much time for a day trip if I wanted to do anything else.

How can you store gunpowder in a damp place without causing it to go bang? Glen will show you!

The Martello Tower and Barracks. If you go to Hoy then make the time to do it properly and you won't be disappointed.

My husband and I had booked on to the one hour tour with the Historic Scotland guide, and we finally left the site 3 hours later! What an amazing place. Glen, our guide, was so knowledgeable and easy to listen to, and we learned so much about this unusual site - its purpose, history and the people who lived and worked here.

It is an amazing site in incredible condition. We had an excellent guided tour by the Historic Scotland guardian. Martello Tower was fully open with wonderful views from the top.

Glen was brilliant. He obviously loves his job and the information he conveyed to us was amazing. Could have listened to him all day.

We visited for my Dad's 80th Birthday and had Michael as our tour guide - he did an absolutely fabulous job of bringing the place to life and setting the monument in context. Dad's grandfather had served at a Martello Tower so this made the day special for him. Great job Michael - thanks! The drive from Lyness is only around 15-20 mins, a great place to start your day on Hoy and then work back towards the ferry. What's here is unique and the whole experience will be quite unforgettable - don't miss out!

Really fantastic tour, with a very knowledgeable guide.

I had absolutely no idea what i was going to, and will admit, on first impressions was a tad underwhelmed. However (despite being very early for our booked tour) the guide was brilliant, and explained everything in really engaging way.

Obviously not as ancient as some sites on orkney, but really really fascinating and the enthusiasm for the place in infectious!

Also- be aware access is up very steep stair/ladder. My 68 year mother managed completely fine, but be aware if you have mobility problems/vertigo.

What a fascinating place - we ahd a great tour from a very knowledgeable guide. The highlight was climbing up the Rapunzel tower and seeing the canon at the top. It really helps put the Orkney archipelago in a historical context that I wasn't aware of. Fascinating, top marks to guide Glen Moon

Probably about the 4th or 5th time i visited the site, this time with my whole family. The tours are added to on each visit, as more information is discovered over the years. The guide (Glen) is passionate about the period in question, and i was astounded by his level of knowledge and his understandable way of presenting the site to visitors. He also does his own research so a lot of the information will not be found in any general guide books. You are not rushed either. it was quiet and we were there over 2 hours Its a really hard site to visit as you have to get to Hoy first. Its without doubt, the best non neolithic site on the islands. Tours of this nature are made or broke by the guides and this guy is top drawer
Go see it.

I spotted this on my OS map as i was driving round South Walls (attached to Hoy by a causeway); I thought, mmm, I wonder what Martello tower means, having never heard of one before. The site has Napoleonic barracks, battery and the Martello Tower. The site managers, who take you round, are very interested in the history which makes the whole site come alive. The view from the top of the Tower is beautiful. When I visited the charming David Mager was the site manager. (I was actually there in July 2017 but I cannot select that below)
