An anonymous benefactor has bought a house in Orkney in the hope of aiding local archaeology efforts.

The unnamed American has bought Loch View in Stenness.

The property lies on the boundary of the Neolithic excavations at the Ness of Brodgar, in the heart of the area's World Heritage Site.

The building has been put in the care of the Orkney Heritage Society, allowing potential demolition if money becomes available to extend the work.
