This is the best location to get an amazing impression on life in the Neolithic period. In 1850 a storm hit the Orkney Islands and uncovered a neolithic village. Archeologists were able to put together the puzzle pieces of how these people used to live: their farmings methods, their engineering techniques and living habits. There are 7 different houses. All are connected to each other and they are even fairly comfortable if you have a close look. It gives a fascinating and tangible inside look to what the stone age was all about. Skara Brae lies 17 mile west of the port.
