We welcome visitors throughout the excavation season, but please remember that the Ness is a working archaeological dig, in a field.

Be prepared for bumpy ground, sometimes wet and slippy, and areas where it is not safe for visitors to go.

During your visit, please keep to indicated routes and stay away from the edges of the digging areas.

Guided tours operate Monday - Friday 11am, 1pm and 3pm, and on Saturdays and Sundays 11am & 3pm, no need to book, just turn up.

Special access and tours outwith the digging season can be arranged by prior appointment with Nick Card, Site Director.

Please see the dig's website for more information.
