Ring of Brodgar

View Photos

Visit this henge and stone circle that has become one of the archipelago’s most iconic sites.

One of the “Heart of Neolithic Orkney” UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Ring of Brodgar is a henge and stone circle that has become one of the archipelago’s most iconic sites. Much like the more famous Stonehenge to the south, the origins and meanings of these megaliths are still lost to history. Arranged in a true circle and dating from 2,500 to 2,000 BC, only 27 of the original 60 giant stones remain.

Sacred shrine? Astronomical observatory? Ritual site? Who knows, but visitors are welcome to join free guided walks here to make an educated guess. And for a haunting photo, visit during sunrise or sunset.
