My impression, however accurate or not, is that the author skimmed what travel brochures she could obtain at the site and reformatted the information for the pages of a hasty book.
But seek out any windows, including this book if nothing else, to see the world of Skara Brae, where people didn't have wood and had to build with stone, leaving intact their great rooms, tables, bed-nooks, and even niches in the bed-area walls, (for personal effects?). I feel the centuries between us erode when I see pictures of their everyday structures, which are otherwise lost in houses build of wood.

Awesome photographs of this weird, remote, unfamiliar spot that was inhabited back when the Pyramids were young.
Very, very interesting.
