Skara Brae is probably the most visited archaeological sight in the Orkneys by organised tours so unlike most other places we visited there were lots of people about.
Skara Brae is very significant. It is a 5,000 year old stone age village right beside the water and was only re-exposed by waves in 1850 so that does make it somewhere special to visit. According to Wikipedia it is Europe's most complete Neolithic ruin.
In this photo you can actually see old furnishings - shelves and a seat.
My only disappointment was the over neatness of everything including one reconstructed house. There is another photo of the village in the WS and a view from the village across the water.
