Discover it in video and photos on the article dedicated to St Magnus Kirkwall Cathedral. St Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall #2 – Earl’s Palace You can choose to travel to the islands by ferry or flight from a variety of destinations, with plenty of options available when you’re planning your visit.I list more options in the article, but, with only a short time, I would recommend staying on Mainland Orkney and discovering: It is not a big town, but it is the largest with a population around 9000. The population is approximately 9,300. Kirkwall is the administrative centre of Kirkwall and a cultural melting pot with influences from the Scottish Mainland and Norse heritage. It’s not uncommon to stumble across beautiful buildings or streets and discover that it’s from the age of the Vikings! Most of the main attractions in the Orkney Islands are located on the West side of Mainland Orkney. Once in Orkney, better to have your own car to discover all the things to do in Orkney on mainland and in the neighboring islands. So, I recommend you take the ferry with your car from Mainland Scotland. This way as soon as you disembark, you can head to the first amazing attractions. No time wasted.

The Orkney Wireless Museum is one of international importance – Name one other museum dedicated to preserving wireless communication history! East Mainland Orkney is less famous. It is mostly low grassy farmland mainly enjoyed by birdwatchers and people interested in World War II. Things to do include: Meanwhile, whisky lovers only have a mile or two to go to find Highland Park Distillery, to the south east of the town, and Scapa Distillery, to the south west. Both offer tastings and tours and are well worth a visit. Bringing your car, motorbike or campervan to Orkney might take longer than hopping on a flight, but you get the added bonus of a road trip exploring other areas of Scotland on your way north. The Causeway is your road to the many smaller islands that dot the south of Kirkwall, and what a splendid drive it is!

Even coming to as remote a place as Orkney, you’ll still be able to taste fine Scottish whiskey at the Highland Park Distillery. Mull Head Nature reserve: coastal grassland with sea cliffs – great for walking and birdwatching – nearby is the sea cave called the Gloup
