Skara Brae, Orkney added to 12 Pics series.
Skara Brae, can be found on the west coast of mainland Orkney, near the Bay of Skiall. It is a Neolithic village, occupied some 5000 years ago, inhabited before the Great Pyramids of Egypt were built.
It remained hidden until a storm hit in 1850 exposing some of the buildings. The village was abandoned around 2500BC.
