Well done historic site -- you are able to visit a reconstructed village and touch everything ad get the feel before you wander into the archaeological site (which helps people resist touching the fragile originals).

A modest stroll of half a mile or so provides spectacular views of a stack, an arch and more impressive coastal rock formations than you can photo - plus distant views of Hoy and the odd seal if you look closely (...
There is an amazing view all along the coastal path, passing a sea stack joined to the cliff by a natural bridge, the past Yesnaby Castle and on again along the cliff tops.

The Ness of Brogdar is part of the Orkney Neolithic World Heritage site, all of which is well worth a visit but because the Ness is an active dig in the summer months we had a whole team of archeologists interpret...
Went to the open day, unfortunately in rainy weather but the excavation is truly amazing and the archaeologists on site were very knowledgeable and friendly.

It will be incredible if archaeologists can someday figure out how all of the sites in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney relate to one another (Ring of Brodgar, Brodgar Ness, Stones of Stennes, Maeshowe, and Skara Brae).
... landscape adjacent to the stones with the lochs of Stenness and Harray being next to them and providing and excellent point for a kayaking trip which gives an interesting perspective on the archaeological site.

The guide........a local resident steeped in Orkney culture........did a superb job of interpreting the site for us, and how it fit into the whole Neolithic civilization that was thriving in the area.
