A day trip here (from Westray) is a must. To visit northern Europe's oldest building and have it all to yourself.
We got the boat from Westray and walked up and down the small island for the day. Hardly saw anyone else at all.

This is the oldest stone built house in Europe. The dresser, fireplace, quernstone, sleeping areas and storeroom areas are all clearly visible.
It is a short walk down from the farm.
It is astonishing!

The Knap O'Howar is like a smaller version of Skara Brae and was discovered in the same way. However, you will probably have it to yourself, and you can get a lot closer than at Skara. It's a bit of a trudge across a field - but stunningly worth it when you get there.

The Knapp of Howar is right on the edge of the sea on Papa Westray, accessed through a rough field. Unlike sites on Mainland Orkney, you're likely to have thisto yourself. It's well worth continuing on north to St Boniface Kirk. With a little planning it's easily accessible from Kirkwall by ferry to Westray, bus over Westray, then another ferry to Papa Westray. Then it's only a couple of miles to walk.

You can feel the difference when you enter the rooms -- The ever-present wind suddenly is no longer roaring in your ears and you understand: The neolithic people who built this settlement, perhaps 500 years before Skara Brae on Mainland Orkney, probably were not much different from yourself. They would have wanted shelter, warmth, and places to store and organize their belongings and foodstuffs. Unlike Skara Brae, you can walk and sit inside these houses, try your hand at the quernstone, and feel much more vividly an echo of life long ago.

Well worth a visit, intriguing look in to life thousands of years ago, fascinating sight over looking the sea. We had an excellent guide who gave us a comprehensive insight into life on Papa Westray, from the distant pass to present day.

We have been to Scara Brae years ago and skipped it this year because the shiploads of busses.. But on our daytrip to Papa Westray by bicycle and on foot we went to this place and loved it. It is a sort of mini-Scara Brae but without other people. We had the place to ourselves and spent there a while just relaxing and enjoying the Knap, the location and the views

Sbarcati Philippa ed io da Westray a Papa Westray,nella baia di Moclett, ci accoglie Jonathan, guida/birdwatcher molto preparata e appassionata che con il suo pulmino ci porta subito a visitare l'affascinante sito neolitico Knap of Howar abitato per 900 anni circa, dal 3700 a.C. al 2800 a.C. e poi la Kirk of St Boniface circondata da antiche tombe. Sembra che la presenza ecclesiastica in questo luogo risalga all'VIII secolo.
A pochi metri, ci sono anche i segni di un altro insediamento neolitico purtroppo ormai eroso dal mare.
