About this app

Explore the historic cairn in 3D, discover Norse graffiti from the 1100s and see how the entrance passage to Maeshowe is perfectly aligned with the setting of the midwinter sun.

Discover Maeshowe with this interactive app, featuring:
• an animated virtual tour
• a photographic slideshow of the site
• an interactive 3D model of the tomb’s interior and exterior
• more about Maeshowe and how to visit the Heart of Neolithic Orkney.

Maeshowe is one of Europe’s finest chambered tombs, built over 5,000 years ago. It is part of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site and is cared for by Historic Environment Scotland.

This app was developed by the Centre for Digital Documentation and Visualisation (CDDV) LLP. Historic Environment Scotland and the Glasgow School of Art School of Simulation and Visualisation formed CDDV in 2010.

We are always looking for feedback so please send any ideas on how we can improve the app to digital@hes.scot. Want to show how much you love Maeshowe in 3D? Rate us in Google Play.
