I think Tump is essentially the same word as lump, hump and bump. Hetty was one of the Peglers, who a few hundred years ago owned the land on which the tump is sited.

Yeah, Orkney is just overflowing with neolithic stuff. The ring of Brodgar ( second picture on this link) is one of the best sites I've been to. After the Avebury 'complex' of course.
