The Brochs of Gurness and Midhowe Guidebook


Gurness Broch and Midhowe Broch sit on either side of Eynhallow Sound. The Sound separates the islands of Orkney and Rousay. Discover both sites in this official souvenir guidebook.

Since the Iron Age, the brochs (hollow-walled structures) have been key to life on Orkney. Brochs are also only found in Scotland. This guide explains more about both brochs and the islands in the Middle Ages. Excavations have unearthed artefacts estimated to be centuries old.
