The Orkney Isles is one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. Located off the northeastern coast of Scotland, Orkney is also one of the slightly more remote places that you can visit if you want to see more of the UK. There are many reasons to visit, from the incredible history to the modern day culture, and the many things to see and do. Visitors can explore the islands both big and small, although none of them are particularly large. Kirkwall is the main town, and our guest house in Kirkwall offers you the perfect place to stay.
Orkney has something for everyone, whether you want to explore rugged outdoor landscapes or learn about the fascinating history of the islands. Your will find fascinating Neolithic sites all over the islands, which date back thousands of years. The preserved village of Skara Brae and Maeshowe, a chambered burial tomb which features Viking carvings from the 12th century, are just two examples of the incredible evidence of Orkney's history that you can find on the islands. In fact, the Heart of Neolithic Orkney is a UNESCO site.
For those who love the outdoors, Orkney is a paradise too. The islands have beautiful beaches and dramatic sea cliffs, ideal for walking and other outdoor pursuits too. You might choose to cycle around the islands or even try your hand at some sea kayaking. There's also plenty to do for people who want to explore Orkney's contemporary scene, from the arts to food and drink. The Pier Arts Centre in Stromness has a wonderful collection of 20th-century British art.
