Neolithic Ness of Brodgar

Location, location, location…

One of the attractions of the Ness of Brodgar excavation site is the location. Situated on an isthmus between the Loch of Stenness and the Loch of Harray, with the Ring of Brodgar to the north-west and the Stones of Stenness to the south-east, there are few archaeological sites in the UK that are more beautiful.

The amazing Ness of Brodgar

The sheer scale of the Neolithic archaeology concentrated in one small area, the amazing stonework, the stunning location and of course the incredible artefacts that are continually coming out of the site. Just yesterday the first decorated stone emerged from the ground.
