Collection of digital photographs taken in August 2005 with a 'fish eye' lens for the specific purpose of creating an interactive panoramic tour. Skara Brae is an archaeological site with exceptionally well preserved remains that show the stone built furniture and internal structure of ten Neolithic houses and their narrow connecting passageways. Radio Carbon dates show that the village was occupied for around 600 years between 3200 and 2200 BC. There appear to be two main structural phases to the occupation. House 9 lies on the south-eastern side of the village. It is not clear how it was accessed and it does not appear to be part of the main complex. Although it has a central hearth and two beds House 9 is also smaller than many of the houses and may be part of an earlier phase of occupation. The monument is now managed by Historic Scotland and is a key element of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site.
