Orkney Marwick Head

Book Walks and Neolithic History in Orkney

The Orkney archipelago, a patchwork collection of 67 islands across the Pentland Firth from the north-eastern coast of Scotland, has been inhabited for over 8,000 years and contains some of the oldest and best-preserved Neolithic sites in Europe. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Neolithic Heart of Orkney consists of the Chambered Cairn at Maeshowe; the Standing Stones of Stenness; the stone Ring of Brodgar and Skara Brae, an original Stone Age village. All of these ancient sites were featured in BBC’s documentary, Britain’s Ancient Capital: Secrets of Orkney.
