It’s part of an ancient landscape which makes up the UNESCO Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site – a circle of tall stones, once 60 of them, with 36 remaining today. Over the centuries many questions have been raised, and archaeological research continues to generate new findings.
This guided walk with Rangers Sandra Miller and Elaine Clarke of Historic Environment Scotland provides the opportunity to find out more about the site, its history, archaeological investigations and its place in Orkney’s Neolithic past. Howie Firth accompanies them to highlight some of the astronomical questions.
Meet at the nearby Brodgar car park before walking to the Ring of Brodgar itself. Through kind support there is no charge for this event.
