What my clients have said about my Orkney tours

“Jean met six of us at Stromness and delivered us safely back to St Margaret’s Hope four days later. She gave us a wonderful three and a half days of touring, was indefatigable, patient and extremely knowledgeable throughout, and showed us sights large and small with grace and friendliness. We all had a wonderful time – Orkney never disappoints but this was the best trip I have been on. Well worth while.”

What Orkney has to offer

Orkney may not look big on the map, but when you get here it’s huge! We have a history stretching back 9,000 years, set in stunning natural surroundings, so there’s lots to see.

Rich in archaeology and history, Orkney boasts a diverse range of sites to visit, including Skara Brae, Standing stones Circles, Brochs, Viking, Earls and Lairds also World War history to the modern day.

  • Our wildlife...

    …includes spectacular seabird colonies, birds of prey, otters, seals and cetaceans. Wild flowers are abundant in the summer months and add a splash of colour to stunning walks along the cliffs and seashores.

  • Our scenery...

    …is breathtaking. Soft rolling farmland and heather clad hills stretch across the islands. The sea and sky change colour all the time in the varying light. A paradise for artists and Photographers alike.

  • Our skies...

    Our sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking.

    On 21st June in Orkney it is never dark, we have 24 hours of day light to enjoy magnificent walks at midnight.
