Ring Of Brodgar, Inverness Reviews

  • Not much to see or do here other than park up and follow the short, circular route around the stones but even that is cool enough, given the history, to warrant a brief visit on a tour around the island. About 30-45 minutes should be more than enough for most people. A couple of information boards detailing the history of the site as you walk around would make a welcome addition.

  • Major Neolithic standing stone ring monument close to the Ness of Brodgar. Entry is free, with guided talks available at set times. This site can get quite busy with visitors. Occasionally access is restricted to protect the ground.

  • Very cool place. Sort of the way Stonehenge was before they had to fence it in. There is work being done on the paths so no walking the inner circle, but open all hours. Wonderful summer evening stroll.

  • Great free historical site. Unable to get near stones here (can at Stenness) wide circle area away from stones you are allowed to walk on. An effort to preserve stones. Making photos tricky. No toilets and big car park a short distance from stones. Well worth seeing.

  • Impressive! One of the must see spots when visiting Orkney. According to legend, it was a religious shrine and possibly a place of ritual, while others believe the ring was built for the astronomical observation of the equinox and solstice.
