Skara Brae Settlement
Skara Brae Settlement
Skara Brae is a stone-built Neolithic settlement, located on the Bay of Skaill on the west coast of Mainland Orkney. It consists of eight clustered houses, and was occupied from roughly 3180BC–2500BC. Europe's most complete Neolithic village, Skara Brae gained UNESCO World Heritage Site status as one of four sites making up "The Heart of Neolithic Orkney". Older than Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids, it has been called the "Scottish Pompeii" because of its excellent preservation. View here towards the Bay of Skaill.
