Spot puffins and seals, dive the wrecks of German war boats at Scapa Flow or simply walk the fields and beaches of this unspoilt natural wonder. And be sure to visit Orkney Mainland’s Skara Brae, the most impressive of the Stone Age remains dotting the islands; this UNESCO World Heritage site is Europe’s best-preserved Neolithic village.
Excellent day out, made extra special by a full day of blue skies and sunshine showing of the Orkney landscape. Everything went to schedule made special with the ferry to start and finish with. On the island a polite and very helpful coach driver giving us a continuous fully informed commentary and just significant time at each venue to appreciate the key items. Highly recommended way of catching the main flavour of the Islands in a day.
We were really worried that the tour might be cancelled as it had been the day before due to stormy weather and the forecast for the Sunday was not good, however we woke up to glorious sunshine and total calm. The day lived up to all our expectations. Stuart, our guide was knowledgeable and his stories about the local history were humorous. I have already recommended this tour to numerous friends as it was the highlight of our two weeks stay in Scotland.
Absolutely wonderful. Best day trip we have ever experienced in the world. Many many thanks to Stuart, our driver and superb knowledgeable and witty guide.
