Skara Brae (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork) — News

Graffiti daubed at historic site


Vandals have daubed graffiti on one of Scotland's most historic sites in Orkney.
Staff at Skara Brae arrived at work on Tuesday to find graffiti scribbled on the walls of the Neolithic village.

The site brings in thousands of visitors every year and is one of Orkney's most iconic tourist attractions.

Police are keen to trace a group of visitors who are believed to have been travelling in a silver Hyundai.

Kilmichael Glassary (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) — Fieldnotes

24-4-05: Early on a Sunday afternoon, sounds of people cutting grass and fixing cars with loud pumping music, getting watched by a woman with her hands on her hips over her garden fence... I could think of more atmospheric places!!!

I felt really sorry for this place. It has a classic metal signpost and fence but unfortunately was scattered with rubbish, including a broken bottle smashed right onto the panel. Very sad.
Everyone should have an alter ego.
