Orkney: Britain’s Ancient Capital

This exciting three part documentary featuring Orkney shows how much these islands have to offer in terms of ancient history. The programme focuses on the Ness of Brodgar, where exciting discoveries are rewriting the theories about Ancient Britain.

Orkney is rich in archaeology and most of the associated sites mentioned in the programmes, including the Ness of Brodgar, Skara Brae and the Tomb of the Eagles are an easy drive from Highland Park House. Many of our guests are keen visitors to these sites and we also have archaeologists and volunteer helpers staying with us. This leads to many a lively discussion around the breakfast table.

We look forward to welcoming all visitors, experts and enthusiasts this year. The Summer of 2017 promises to yield exciting new discoveries as the dig progresses.
