The Brough of Birsay Guidebook
The Brough of Birsay sits just off the island of Orkney. It has been home to Norse and Pictish settlers over hundreds of years. Visiting is only possible at certain times, depending on the tide. Explore this untouched island through the official guidebook.
'Brough' is another word for 'broch', a hollow stone-walled structure unique to Scotland. The history of the island is an insight into how Scotland and Celtic beliefs have evolved. Homes, barns and workshops still stand on the Brough of Birsay.
