Soak in the delights of Orkney with its spectacular land and seascapes whilst learning about the important roles the islands have played in history through the ages.
Visit Skara brae, a stone built settlement, which was uncovered by a storm and eventually excavated. It reveals several structures through time which show us how our ancestors lived. Skara Brae sits on the beautiful and rustic shoreline of Skaill beach and on the grounds of Skaill house, the largest manor house in Orkney. The tour will then explore the Standing Stones of Stenness, the oldest henge monument in Orkney, hear tales of its place in history through the years.
Travel back to Kirkwall where you have some free time to either shop and visit our cafes and bar or take the opportunity to visit the St Magnus Cathedral and Earls and Bishops Palaces, all erected when Orkney was under Norse rule. The tour will then take you to the East Mainland of Orkney where we learn stories that shaped the World Wars and visit the enchanting Italian Chapel built by Prisoners of War during the WWII before returning back to Kirkwall.
