Skara Brae is a world-renowned prehistoric site, one of the very few virtually complete neolithic villages in existence. The site looks out over a beautiful sandy beach and the blue Atlantic ocean beyond. The village was built out of stone to a detailed plan, with a workshop, interconnecting passageways, stone beds, stone cupboards and even stone dressers. The village dates back to about 5000 years ago but was preserved by sand dunes for millenia. It's design is simply exquisite..
The visitors centre has a smart cafe, a souvenir shop and most importantly an exhibition of artefacts found in the village site.
Anyone with an interest in the human race should see this precious jewel of Orkney archaeology.
