Skara Brae & Skaill House

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from €137,71 EUR / Adult
Find yourself steeped in the Stone Age amid the remarkably preserved remains of Skara Brae, a Neolithic settlement dating back some 5,000 years. This incredible find predates Stonehenge and even the pyramids of Egypt. Follow a local expert on a trek that winds past the ancient structures that lay buried until a mighty storm in 1850 revealed a portion of the ruins. Witness an ancient home and imagine what life must have been like for the farming, hunting and fishing families that lived here millennia ago. Take in sweeping views overlooking the Bay of Skaill before continuing to the famous 17th-century mansion that lies nearby. Skaill House is the former home of the man who unearthed the ancient village and it’s been lovingly restored to its early glory.
  • Explore remarkably preserved ancient village of Skara Brae, which predates even Stonehenge.
  • Enter Skaill House, a 17th-century manor that was home to the man who discovered Skara Brae.
  • Soak up spectacular views overlooking the Bay of Skaill from both landmarks.
