Wander around a site where people lived for more than 4,000 years. There are remains of Bronze Age oval houses, an Iron Age broch and wheelhouses, Viking longhouses, a medieval farmstead an a laird’s house built around 1600. This enduring site is without parallel in Scotland and helped inspire Sir Walter Scott’s novel The Pirate.
