Summary

From standing stones to chambered cairns

The islands beyond the northernmost tip of Scotland glory in some of the most beautiful and rugged landscapes in the world. For more than five thousand years they have been home to farmers and fishermen, who left monuments so impressive that this has been called an archaeologists’ paradise. During the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age, the people of Orkney and Shetland were among the first in Britain to begin building Megalithic chamber tombs and later henge monuments. The islands are also blessed with an extraordinary natural beauty. Wildflowers bloom throughout the summer, covering the green cliffs with color and the exquisite scent of heather.

Tour highlights:

  • Marvel at the Neolithic dwellings at Skara Brae
  • Visit Maeshowe, one of Europe’s finest Neolithic chambered cairns
  • Admire the megalithic Stones of Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar
  • Discover Jarlshof with its remarkably well-preserved wheelhouses
