A township on the west Mainland of Shetland, Stanydale lies 3 miles (5 km) to the east of Walls. Nearby is an outstanding archaeological site comprising a variety of remains including the 'Stanydale Temple', a double-sized version of the common prehistoric house and the only truly megalithic structure to have survived from prehistoric Shetland. The 'temple' was probably built between 2500 and 2000 BC.
