Orkney

Explore, plan and book with Wild Scotland

120

Orkney consists of 70 islands (20 inhabited) roughly 10 miles off the north coast of Scotland. 

Visit the enchanting islands of Orkney for beautiful beaches to dramatic sea cliffs and wondrous wildlife from the endearingly cute puffins, day-hunting short-eared owls, wailing red-throated divers (known as the rain-goose) and nesting shorebirds. Dolphins, killer whales and grey and common seals can also be spotted and brown hares share flowery meadows with the unique Orkney vole.

Visit the Isle of Ronaldsy which is now officially a Dark Sky Island or head to Westray (one of the largest of the islands) and visit the RSPB Nature reserve and enjoy walks on the cliff top paths with views of natural arches.

Reconnect with nature and experience incredible wildlife and many adventure activities from wildlife watching tours to boat trips, sea kayaking, diving, cycling and walking.

Orkney is also well known for its delicious local produce and local crafts.
