Scord of Brouster

Loupin' Stanes image

The hillside of Scord of Brouster (Shetland) is littered with the remains of a Neolithic settlement. Some oval houses and their system of interlinked field walls have been found. The largest house measures 5m x 7m internally and contains a central hearth surrounded by cells divided by massive orthostats.
Other features include an oblong stone enclosure about 60m long and a perfectly circular kerbed cairn (in the photo), that is one of the latest structures of the site.
