Old Scatness Broch & Iron Age Village

Old Scatness Broch and Iron Age Village lay undiscovered beneath our feet for over a millennium. Join us as we uncover the mystery, myth and legend of this world class heritage site.

The Iron Age Broch and Village at Old Scatness was an undisturbed, pristine time capsule when first discovered in 1975, as the result of a road being put through what was thought to be a natural mound.  The road was realigned to protect the site when it was identified as a broch by a local historian.
