Beautiful, peaceful and tranquil. The sands are white and the water turquoise. Could be in the Caribbean except for the weather!

Fascinating talk about this group of Iron Age houses. How they appeared out of the sand after storm. The actual house restored was amazing. These people were very clever builders. Came away feeling I had learnt a great deal about how these dwellers lived. Excellent.

Fascinating iron age house at a fairly remote and stunning beach location. Paul the archeologist was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of this place. We were very touched that he postponed his lunch in order to give us the tour!

A brilliant glimpse into life on the islands in 500-700AD. The reconstructed house is a living archaeological site, with lessons learned about the roofing and structures over time and weather events. Simple discoveries like how the door was positioned and the ventilation within the house meant that one side of the house was always warm and the fire didn’t blow out, whilst the smoke was drawn out. The fact the house was constructed mostly underground and has a second chambered room, possibly used for food storage, are also unusual features. The guide was excellent and the beach nearby is beautiful and peaceful. Really enjoyable look back to the past.

Really remote but worth the trip. This is the site of an old village which is now in the dunes and was uncovered in a storm. One house from around 600AD has had its roof replaced and has been restored. It’s quite an experience entering the house and imagining how they lived and what their priorities were in those days. The host who is there every day tells you about how they lived and some really interesting details about the design etc.
As a bonus the beach it is on is lovely to. Great experience for £4 a head.

Thank you to the very knowledgeable and welcoming guide. We really enjoyed our visit and found her insight into iron age life fascinating. She brought alive how it may have been to live in these times. Wonderful setting by Bostadh beach which is beautiful.
