Park in the car park for Skaill Beach – just up the road from Skara Brae.
The Barrows are at the end of a small track directly opposite the car park.

The terrain here is one of ‘lumpy bumpy’ grass covered mounds.
I have no idea which ones are the Barrows?

Canmore states:
‘Only two sandy grass-covered mounds can now be identified with any of those published on the OS 6’’ map. One is 1.8m high and the other 1.2m high’.
