A Neolithic Orkney burial cairn is to stay open to the public thanks to a shuttle bus service aimed at addressing road safety concerns.
Concerns had been raised over the car park at Maeshowe.
Historic Environment Scotland said a shuttle bus service was being introduced from Thursday from the visitor centre at Skara Brae, allowing three tours a day.
The agency said work to find a long-term solution was ongoing.
