Maeshowe Visitor Centre (at Stenness), Ireland Road, Stenness KW16 3LB
Plan your visit
We're delighted to welcome you back to the Maeshowe Visitor Centre. The cairn remains closed for now.
Admission to the Centre is free of charge but, due to space and required distancing measures, you must book your visit in advance. As part of your visit, you will receive a talk bringing Neolithic Orkney and the World Heritage Site back to life.
Our staff have been trained in hygiene and social distancing and have been provided with the necessary PPE
Signage is on site to guide visitors, including one way systems and marked areas that are currently closed to visitors
We have introduced enhanced cleaning measures to make visitors feel comfortable while visiting
In line with Scottish Government legislation and guidance, face coverings are mandatory if you are visiting any indoor/enclosed spaces at our sites including retail and catering areas (subject to some exceptions).
Masks will not be provided, so make sure you bring one with you
Face shields (e.g. visors) no longer count as face coverings on their own. They can only be worn in conjunction with other face covering
Face coverings are not required while visiting external areas of the sites
If you feel wearing a face covering at all times during your visit (including in external areas) will make you more comfortable, then please wear one, as we want you to enjoy your visit as much as possible
