Skara Brae

Mainland, Orkney, KW16 3LR

Skara Brae - Michael C Hogan


Skara Brae is one of the best preserved neolithic settlements Western Europe. First uncovered  in 1850 by a storm, the settlement is believed to have been occupied for around 600 year some time between 3200BC and 2200BC. In the care of Historic Scotland,  the site allows visitors to gain a real impression of life in a prehistoric village and see the ancient houses fitted with stone beds, dressers and seats. The visitor centre provides presentationsand information for children and adults, and an opportunity to see artefacts discovered during more recent archaeological excavations. Cafe and gift shop on site.
