This article discusses modern runic inscriptions from Orkney and Caithness. It presents various examples, some of which were previously considered 'genuine' and reveals that Or 13 Skara Brae is of modern provenance. The terminology concerning 'runic forgeries' is examined and suggestions are presented as to why there is such an abundance of recently carved inscriptions in this particular region.
