Skara Brae

Skara Brae, a Neolithic (early Stone Age) settlement, is located on the west coast of the Mainland of the Orkney Islands. Hidden under the sand for a long time, this well-preserved prehistoric village provides a clear picture of everyday life in the Stone Age. Radiocarbon dating has shown that the homes date from 3100-2500 BCE.

Skara Brae, along with Maes Howe, the Stones of Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar, belongs to the Neolithic Heart of Orkney, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999.
