Part of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site, the Ring o’ Brodgar is found in the West Mainland parish of Stenness (off the coast of Scotland). It stands on an eastward-sloping plateau on the Ness o’ Brodgar – a thin strip of land separating the Harray and Stenness lochs. Because the interior of the Ring o’ Brodgar has never been fully excavated, or scientifically dated, the monument’s actual age remains uncertain although thought to have been erected between 2500 BC and 2000 BC
