The Ring of Brodgar


The Ring of Brogar is the finest known truly circular later Neolithic or early Bronbze Age stone ring. The Ring of Brogar along with three other properties in the case of Historic Scotland at Maes Howe, Stones of Stenness and Skara Brae, form the heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site. The monuments of Orkney, dating back to 3000-2000 BC, are outstanding testimony to the cultural achievements of the Neolithic peoples of northern Europe.
