Jarlshof Prehistoric and Norse Settlement

Sumburgh
Shetland
Shetland Isles
ZE3 9JN

This is an extraordinarily important site with a complex of ancient settlements within three acres.

The oldest is a Bronze Age village of oval stone huts. Above this there are an Iron Age broch and wheelhouses, and higher still an entire Viking settlement.

On the crest of the mount is a house built around 1600.

The visitor centre has displays on Iron Age life and the history of the site.

This property is managed by Historic Scotland.
