  • 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.
