Scope and Content Settlement at Skara Brae, Orkney The settlement at Skara Brae was discovered in 1850 when a storm destroyed part of the sand-dune which covered it. The village would originally have stood inland, but coastal erosion now means it is on the shore. It consists of houses and a workshop. This is a view of house 7 showing the doorway. This would have had a wooden door, and the jambs can still be seen. The doorway leads to one of the passages that link the houses together. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
