Rousay has so many antiquities but it's possble to "do" the main ones in a day, The Blackhammer Cairn is readily accessible from the roadside and is very large inside.
impressive small chambered burial cairn right by the road to Midhowe.

With the cairn next door, many pass by the Broch but are missing a treat, fantastic piece of history of the island which is well preserved.
If you've hiked down from the parking are to see Midhowe Cairn, take the extra time to visit the broch (1st century or so defensive structure).
