In addition, there are other boards. The tour should necessarily with the audio guide taken (only English?) are. This gives interesting explanations and insights into the lives of the residents in addition to the boards on the tour. The visit is a must on Shetland, if you would like to inform yourself about the history of the island.

This was a great place, however, having spent longer than anticipated at Sumburgh Head we were rushing a bit here. Leave more than an hour! I was glad I had the guide book as it mapped everything we w... more »

Like old shetland? You will love it here, different settlements marked out and a small information point too. Visiting shetland then you must go here! more »
We visited during the off-season so the visitor centre was closed, which meant we couldn't get the audio guide to take around the site. However, the rest of the site was open and free to walk around (instead of paying the ~£5 entry fee) and there are some information boards to read. There's so much history to discover at this site and fantastic views of the surrounding area from the top of the spiral staircase in the central building on the hill. We'll definitely be returning sometime when the visitor centre is open so we can learn more from the audio guides.
Fascinating place with history of thousands of years of human habitation. You can walk around freely plus there are audio tours. It's in Shetland so it's often windy. You can use the toilets in the Sumburgh hotel, right by the site and get tea and cake too.
We went there in the middle of February so we didn't have to pay an entrance fee and we got lucky enough to be alone under a bright blue sunny sky! Our dog was able to frolic around a bit (while we made sure she didn't disturb anything in any way) and we got a good read and some cool photos and learned quite a bit! The beach near by is also lovely if the weather is on your side!
Amazing place. lot of history and nice view
Amazing place to walk slowly around and take in the full breadth of history
