This lookes very old. Could you tell me, what these walls are for? Has it anything to do with the Romans?
I like this shot! The curves, the green and the contrast between nature and men-made
This came before Romans! It is Neolithic. "Radiocarbon dating in the early 1970s showed the settlement was much older and, dating from the late Neolithic, was actually inhabited between 3200 BC and 2200 BC."
The settlement was evidenced after a terrific storm in the area. This is a passagway between apartments.
The people lived on shellfish but also were involved in some farming.
I have more photos somewhere. I will have to 'unearth' them. Thanks for looking!
Thanks for the information, VKeith. I would like to see more pictures!
Hiya, Sabine. I have posted 3 more pictures of Skara Brae. Thanks for your interest.
That is a very interesting picture. I like the angle of the picture and of course that beautifull green grass. Congratulations! YS
Thank you, kariklea and MAGDALENO! Skara Brae is an amazing place!
Very interesting View.I´m in September in the North of Scotland and maybe I wanna travel there for few Hours, and I wanna take the last Ferry back to the Mainland. Can you tell me how long does it take to drive around the island?? Regards from Germany
Hi Kleene! I can't remember. We didn't visit the whole island but I think we there only for one day. I wish I had stayed longer! Best wishes from Virginia
