Maeshowe is the finest chambered tomb in north-west Europe and more than 5000 years old. It was broken into in the mid-twelfth century by Viking crusaders who carved graffiti runes on the walls of the main chamber. In 1999, it was designated a World Heritage Site with Skara Brae, Ring of Brodgar and the Stones of Stenness. The shop features many products made in Orkney.
