This tour takes you to some of the most beautiful spots on the West Mainland of Orkney.
We start with a drive to Standing Stones of Stenness, the oldest henge monument in Scotland, a 5000 year old stone circle set in between two lochs. The shores and are a haven for wildlife and you are likely to see seals bathing on the rocks and swans and other aquatic birds nearby.
We then drive past more Neolithic sites including the Ness of Brodgar and the Ring of Brodgar on the way to the Cliff’s of Yesnaby. Here you will see dramatic cliffs on the west coast of the Orkney Mainland, a stunning location that must be seen.
To finish the tour we then drive around Scapa Flow with sites over our southern isles. This was the main British Naval base during World War 1 and World War 2. The scenery is stunning and you will learn what went on in this great harbour in the 20th century before heading back to Kirkwall.
