Orkney has a rich history, dating back to the Neolithic period. Skara Brae and other archeological excavations in Orkney are changing the way we look at history! You can also walk a huge stone circle, the 104 metre wide Ring of Brodgar.

Don’t miss the island of Hoy, and learning more about Orkney’s role in both World Wars.
