  • A short walk from Scara Brae is Skaill House. The history of the house is interesting as are the artefacts and pictures. Well worth a visit.  more »
  • Skaill house is open in summer and a ticket for Skara Brae Neolithic village gives joint entry to both. Do not expect a stately home. It was lived in until the end of the 20th century and is an exampl...  more »
  • This villa originally home of the masters of the land where she was discovered Skara Brae has become also the Museum, accessible with the same ticket Neolithic site. Offers an insight into Scottish life in the early twentieth century, with various junk on display, without however nothing really interesting.

  • Not a must see but seeing as it's part of the Skara Brae entry free, it's worth a look. The plate set from Captains Cook's voyage is interesting to see and if nothing else, it gets you out of the wind coming in off Skaill Bay
  • Interesting add on to the Skara Brae tour, but not the end of the world if you decide to skip it.
  • Historic Manor House with some interesting contents.Entry included as part of Skara Brae
  • Honestly, I came to see Skara Brae last summer, but Skaill house was much better.
  • Really interesting and right next to Skara Brae. This is by fare one of the most interesting places to visit on Orkney.
