Skara Brae

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


Happily, Skara Brae can be visited after the visitor centre has closed, so you can have it to yourself, and peruse at leisure.

The glass roof over one of the houses detracts somewhat, but the others are pretty well preserved too, so it's not that big a deal.

Keep eyes peeles for the carvings, covered by sheets of perspex.

If you've a leaning towards gratuitous pondering, also keep an eye out for the suspicious looking stone lying prone between the village and the visitor centre, just inland of the path.
