Skara Brae, near Kirkwall, Orkney, is the best preserved Neolithic village in Britain. Part of the Scotland Guide at Britain Express, highlighting attractions, history, and visitor information. Skara Brae is composed of eight houses connected by passageways roofed with sod. Each house is built to the same design; a central hearth with a stone dresser opposite the entrance, and beds to either side. The village was laid out with individual family living quarters branching from a single, main passage. Anyone moving through the village had to follow this passage. The village also had a well-planned drainage system and perhaps even toilets. Skara Brae hut interior. The living areas were essentially identical; each opened onto a central hearth with a stone dresser on the far side opposite.
In its lifetime, Skara Brae became embedded in its own rubbish and this, together with the encroaching sand dunes, meant the village was gradually abandoned. Thereafter, the settlement was gradually covered by a drifting wall of sand that hid it from sight for for over 40 centuries. But the elements that exposed Skara Brae to the world are also its greatest nemesis. The village remains under constant threat by coastal erosion and the onslaught of the sand and sea. In addition, the increasing number of visitors to the site annually are causing problems.

Skara Brae was a traditional Irish music group with origins in Rannafast, County Donegal, Ireland. The group consisted of three siblings, Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill, Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill and Mícheál Ó Domhnaill with Dáithí Sproule. Though brought up in County Meath, the Uí Dhomhnaill siblings had their roots in Rannafast (Rann na Feirste), where their father's family originated. Mícheál and Tríona came together with Dáithí when they went to University College Dublin in the late 1960s.
