Summary

Orkney is an archipelago of 70 islands, each with their own distinctive charm, history and natural beauty. Over the years Brightwater Holidays has explored almost every nook and cranny of Orkney, yet these beautiful islands contain many more secrets and hidden gems that need to be discovered. Based on Mainland, we will have an opportunity to visit previously unexplored areas as we discover the historic landmarks and captivating landscapes of the North and South Isles.

On the island of Westray we will relive Orkney’s Viking past as we sail the Old Norse sea routes. We will also sail across Scapa Flow to Hoy – an island of dramatic mountain scenery and seascapes that inspired the Orcadian symphonies of former resident Sir Peter Maxwell-Davies. Finally, we will explore Mainland and the sites that are collectively known as the ‘Heart of Neolithic Orkney’ – Maeshowe, the Stones of Stenness and Skara Brae.

Tour highlights:

  • Spectacular sea cliffs of Noup Head, Westray
  • Views of the Old Man of Hoy as we sail to Scrabster
  • Orkney’s Naval history in Scapa Flow and the Lyness Naval Base
  • The UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Maeshowe, Stones of Stenness and Skara Brae
  • A dram of the finest whisky at Highland Park Distillery
