Old Scatness has some history as a settlement. It's in the South Mainland of Shetland and illustrates how one culture, in this case Pictish, developed a 'residential area' that was taken over by another, Viking. Then it became a ruin, to be resurrected with archaeological discoveries during airport construction work. Now there's a possibility that its status could be enhanced as a World Heritage Site. More details are in Shetland News.
