Visiting Skara Brae Prehistoric Village
I haven't been to Skara Brae Prehistoric Village yet...
The Neolithic settlement of Skara Brae lies near the dramatic white beach of the Bay of Skaill. Skara Brae is the best-preserved group of prehistoric houses in western Europe. Uncovered by a storm in 1850, the site presents a remarkable picture of life around 5,000 years ago. Visitors can experience a vivid impression of the realities of a prehistoric village and see ancient homes fitted with stone bed enclosures, dressers and seats. A replica construction allows visitors to fully understand the interior of a prehistoric house. An informative visitor centre provides touch-screen presentations, fact-finding quizzes for children and adults, and an opportunity to see artefacts discovered during archaeological excavations in the 1970s. There is a cafe (which may have restricted opening hours in the winter) and a well-stocked gift shop selling locally-made souvenirs and crafts. Skara Brae is part of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site.
