  • Places to Visit

    • Maeshowe or Maes Howe

      Maeshowe is a Neolithic chambered cairn and passage grave situated on Mainland. It was probably built in around 2800 BC. It gives its name to the Maeshowe type of chambered cairn, which is only found in Orkney.

    • Barnhouse Settlement

      ONly discovered in 1984, this is another fascinating neolithic monument that makes this area absolutely remarkable. 15 houses that date back to 3000BC. Walk from the Standing Stones of Stenness.

    • Standing Stones of Stenness & Ring of Brodgar

      Two Henges (or sets of standing stones) in walking distance of each. Catch them at sunset or early evening when you will virtually have them to yourself. Amazing and so much more exciting than Stonehenge!

    • Ness of Brodgar

      The most recent Neolithic site in the area and to some accounts the most important. Dates back to 3500BC and was occupied for 1500 years. In the summer months, archeologists are hard at work. 

    • Skara Brae

      The best preserved stone age village in Europe: an extraordinary insight into life 5000 years ago.
