Make a Donation

Donation by bank transfer: We can accept transfers from both UK and overseas banks. Please email us at and we will send you our bank details for your electronic transfer.


Donation by cheque: we are happy to accept cheques and international banker's drafts made payable to 'Swandro - Orkney Coastal Archaeology Trust' and posted to us at Bayview, Birsay, Orkney, KW17 2LR.

We can accept cheques in your local currency e.g. US dollars but due to the time taken for our bank to negotiate payment we would prefer that you used another method if possible. UK taxpayers: please download our Gift Aid form and send it along with your donation.


Leave us a legacy: you may like to consider remembering us by a gift in your will, which can also reduce your liability for inheritance tax. If so you will need to ask your solicitor to include our name, registered address and charity number, which are:

Swandro-Orkney Coastal Archaeology Trust, Bayview, Birsay, Orkney, KW17 2LR

Registered Scottish Charity No: SC047002


We really need your help to raise the necessary funds to rescue the site before it is destroyed by the Atlantic Ocean - any amount large or small is very welcome. The photo below shows how close the Atlantic is to the site. The concentric rings of the chambered tomb on the right show the damage to the outer circuit of the wall which has taken place in the last three years. This site will be destroyed completely in the not-too-distant future.



If you are a UK taxpayer and would like to Gift Aid your credit card donation please complete our online Gift Aid form - it will only take a few moments and it will make your donation worth an extra 25% to us at no extra cost to yourself

Our current target is to raise enough money to enable us to dig for a 8-week season in 2018 and to help fund some of the post-excavation cost this will generate, as explained here. You can donate online using your credit card via PayPal by clicking the button below (you don't need a PayPal account, just a credit card).
