Book Online Required To Visit Skara Brae

Skara Brae reopened to visitors on Friday 28th of August.

Having seen several visitors turn up there in recent days and try to get in when it was closed it is timely to remind people about the online booking system which must be used to gain admittance.

A number of new safety and hygiene measures will be in place at the site. Tickets must be booked in advance, while on site cash payments are no longer being accepted for the foreseeable future, with visitors being asked to use contactless payment where possible.

Capacity will be reduced on site, one-way systems will be in place, and access to small enclosed spaces where physical distancing is not possible will be restricted, including the Replica House and cafe.

Visitors will also be required to wear face coverings when entering the retail shops, and other interior spaces in line with Scottish Government guidance.

Skara Brae is open dally from 10am to 4pm,  with last entry at 3.15pm.
