April - September, Orkney

The Broch of Gurness (Aikerness Broch) is strikingly positioned beside Eynhallow Sound with views across to the island of Rousay. It is one of the most outstanding surviving examples of a later prehistoric (Iron-Age) settlement that is unique to northern Scotland and is a recognised icon of Orkney’s rich archaeological heritage.
