Knowe of Queen o Howe
The Knowe of Queen o’Howe is a turf-covered, artificial mound which probably contains a broch tower. Located in the north of the island of Westray in Orkney, it is mostly made of large stones with a circular hollow on the top, used for burning kelp.
The name is derived from Old Norse meaning ‘enclosure’ and ‘mound’. Excavations nearby have uncovered evidence of a settlement which predates Skara Brae so it is likely that Knowe of Queen o’Howe was also a settlement.
