Part of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site, the Ring of Brodgar is a neolithic stone circle in the West Mainland parish of Stenness. It stands on an eastward-sloping plateau on the Ness of Brodgar - a thin strip of land separating the Harray and Stenness lochs. With a diameter of 103.6 metres (340 ft) it is the third largest stone circle in the British Isles. It is generally assumed to have been erected between 2500 BC and 2000 BC.
