Skara Brae, Orkney Isles

Skara Brae, Orkney Isles

FDT harnessed the most modern roofing materials and advanced 21st century technological know-how to help preserve one of Europe’s most remarkable ancient monuments, 5,000-year-old Skara Brae.

The designated World Heritage Site, a fascinating commune of small interlinked stone dwellings, is one of the most-visited tourist attractions on the historic Orkney islands and offers up to 60,000 visitors a year an unparalleled taste of life in Neolithic Orkney.

With the site at the mercy of the fierce coastal elements, Historic Scotland, who care for the attraction, called on FDT to help overcome an unusual problem.

Neolithic carvings beneath the glass viewing roof of one of its famous domed homes were threatened by an unstable environment. Rhepanol hg was chosen to create a new watertight garden roof that blends in aesthetically and could be left undisturbed for up to 50 years.
