  • Its Ok for a little look around, and since it is included with the access to Skara Brae to defiantly take a look
  • 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
  • Honestly, I came to see Skara Brae last summer, but Skaill house was much better.
  • It's OK, worth a quick look if you're visiting Skara Brae. There a dinner set from Captain Cook's last voyage, and some other interesting old antiques.
  • Really interesting and right next to Skara Brae. This is by fare one of the most interesting places to visit on Orkney.
