Welcome to Orkney
Orkney is an archipelago off the north-eastern coast of Scotland. The islands encompass Neolithic sites, tall sandstone cliffs and seal colonies.
The ‘Heart of Neolithic Orkney’ is a group of 5,000-year-old sites on Mainland, the largest island including Skara Brae, a preserved village with a reconstructed house, and Maeshowe, a chambered burial tomb incorporating 12th-century Viking carvings.
