The Orkneys – Skara Brae – Prehistoric Village

A fabulous site. The colours of the light on the bay. This prehistoric village is not only well preserved but has a majestic beauty.

The site was occupied from roughly 3180 BC to about 2500 BC and is Europe’s most complete Neolithic village. Skara Brae gained UNESCOWorld Heritage Site status as one of four sites making up “The Heart of Neolithic Orkney“.a Older than Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids, it has been called the “Scottish Pompeii” because of its excellent preservation.[5]
