Anyone who comes to the Orkneys and doesn't visit this site is making a huge mistake. The talk at the museum couldn't be bettered and gave us a solid grounding in preparation for the tomb visit... more »
The visitor centre offers two introductory interactive talks about the two sites (Bronze age and Neolithic) on the premises. The guides are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. After the introduction, the sites can be accessed on foot via a scenic walk offering views of coastline cliffs. The Neolithic Tomb of the Eagles is located fairly close to the ocean and can be entered via a short crawlspace which is equipped with a trolley enabling easy access to most. Even if one does not enter the tomb the walk is worth it if the weather is good.
Well worth a visit. Not expensive and you get a good history talk and walk to the tomb. You will probably spend around at most 2 hrs to go around everything. The walk to the tomb is reasonably flat with some very good views, and getting into the tomb is a bit of fun as the doorway is quite small.
