Orkney green and lush countryside, birds galore including puffins, and wildlife in one of the most untouched habitats in the UK. You will enjoy wonderful walks, the pristine coastline and cliffs, including the famous landmark of the Old Man of Hoy that rises dramatically from the sea. If that is not enough we have history - the ancient village of Skara Brae, the truly spectacular Ring of Brodgar which contains 27 of the original 60 stones and dates back to around 3000 BC.
Truly outstanding heritage and culture from times and people long gone.
