Facilities & Access

Access to Skaill House

Access to Skaill House is via the Skara Brae visitor centre. The visitor centre has a ramp entry and is contained on one level.

Skaill House is linked to the Skara Brae site by footpaths which can be used by visitors using wheelchairs. There are two wheelchairs available at the visitor centre.

The ground floor of the building is full accessible and includes the hallway, three display rooms, a shop and disabled toilet. More mobile visitors can gain access to the upper floor with the help of staff, who are happy to oblige.


Parking for the house can be found at the Skara Brae Vistor centre, which serves both attractions.

We do not have electric car charging points, however there are several in the local area. Take a look at Zap Map.
