Escape the crowds, dive deep into Orkney’s unique heritage and enjoy live music in this family friendly tour!  

We begin with a journey back thousands of years into the UNESCO World Heritage site “Heart of Neolithic Orkney”. We will visit the ancient standing Stones of Stenness. Marvel at the huge stones which have stood for over five thousand years.  

We then travel from the Stone Age to the 1870s at the Barony Mill. For centuries the mill has been active in grinding a unique grain – Beremeal. This grain has been grown for generations, all the way back to the Vikings. Discover the genius use of natural power from the local expert. Young visitors can enjoy a mouse hunt game throughout the mill.

 

Then get blown away by the majesty of Orcadian nature at the Brough of  Birsay. Enjoy the waves crashing on the cliffs in this stunning photo opportunity. 

Next, we visit the Corrigall Farm Museum. Lovingly restored to its Victorian heyday, the museum is more like a time machine. Enjoy the peat fire crackling in the hearth as you learn how Orcadians survived through farming.

Then it’s time for live music! Be entertained by talented local musicians. Orkney has a rich tradition of folk music with a  world famous  festival drawing thousands to the island annually. See what all the fuss is about for yourself!  

 

After four hours of time travel and learning you will be returned to your ship.
