If you fly north from Scotland, you will soon see Orkney’s archipelago with 70 islands. Treasures lie in prehistoric sites and on the clifftops and beaches, as well as in the food and drink, and warm hospitality of the locals.
Orkney has the largest concentration of prehistoric sites anywhere in Western Europe. This is truly a breath-taking location. You can visit the Neolithic village Skara Brae which dates back to 5,000 years ago. This Neolithic village has stone beds and chairs as well as the Viking-graffitied Maeshowe Tomb and the Standing Stone Circle. So many archaeological treasures that it will take you another 5,000 years just to see them all. The St Magnus Cathedral is worth a visit in Kirkwall. Also, the humbler, but equally as inspiring, Italian Chapel was built by Italian POWs during the 1940s.
This is where birdwatchers flock. Attracted to the millions of seabirds. Seals, otters as well as dolphins are found on the shores and in the skerries. Scapa Flow is home to wrecks from the German Grand Fleet. These were sunk in 1919 and are now fascinating diving areas. Watch out for the aurora borealis, which can be seen above.
There is an abundance of delicious food to be had, including local cheeses, beef, seafood, and handcrafted spirits. Orkney is located north of Scotland's mainland. This island will take you out of this world.
