Good news for all visitors to Orkney this summer;  Historic Environment Scotland (HES)  have been given permission to convert premises in nearby Stenness into a new visitor centre for Maeshowe, including improved car parking arrangements and on-site signage. This will be a relief for those visitors who come to view the UNESCO World Heritage monuments known as Heart of Neolithic OrkneyMaeshowe is one of the central attractions, along with Ring of Brodgar, Standing Stones of Stenness and Skara Brae. As Annie's Place is only a short drive from these sites, this news will be welcome to our guests, some of whom are travelling from far afield to experience the wonders of these unique visitor attractions.
