Prices and opening times

Midhowe Chambered Cairn is free to visit and open year-round*.


Midhowe Chamber Cairn is closed from 7 August 2017 to allow for conservation work. Scaffolding will be in place throughout the site until late December 2017, to allow for access to the roof and to protect the Cairn, preventing general access.

All other sites on Rousay, including the Midhowe Broch, are expected to remain open as normal.
