Orkney Islands - Home


This is the richest of all the islands in terms of prehistoric sites. Not far from the pier are three substantial burial cairns, while further up the sound is Midhowe one of the biggest chambered cairns in Scotland. There are many other cairns, several brochs, a Stone Age village and an immense standing stone.

Ro-ro ferry from Tingwall.
