- Visit The Ring of Brodgar. It’s the largest Neolithic standing stone circle in Scotland, it consists of twenty five stones and is more than three hundred and forty feet in diameter. There is a special celebration at the ring every spring equinox.
- Visit Skara Brae. Another Neolithic structure near the beautiful beach of Bay of Skaill. It is one of the best preserved groups of prehistoric houses in Western Europe. Uncovered by a storm in 1850, the attraction presents a remarkable picture of life around 5,000 years ago.

Orkney can be thought of as the hub of the north sea, with links south to the Scottish mainland and north to the Northern Isles, Shetland, Iceland and Norway. Stromness is a charismatic town not to be missed on your Orkney adventures. Narrow stone flags streets, an amazingly informative museum and close to ancient stoneage sites. From the nearby ferry terminal you can travel to the Scottish mainland and the nearby islands of Graemsay and Hoy.
