Monuments of Orkney

£9.00

Orkney’s history stretches back thousands of years. This small island has a big heritage, boasting Neolithic farms and monuments, Norse cathedrals and an Italian chapel built by prisoners of war. This guide gives a brief history of the islands, and a site location directory.

Over sixty monuments are detailed in Monuments of Orkney, from the UNESCO World Heritage Site which contains spectacular Neolithic stones, through to Kirkwall’s Viking-built St Magnus Cathedral and the marks left by the Stewart earls of the late middle ages.

This illustrated guide is a must-have for anyone planning a trip to Orkney, or anyone with a keen interest in Scotland’s past.
