Join local wildlife guide Megan for a walk around her local patch, where she can take you off the beaten track and show you some Hidden Gems.

Join Megan for a walk on her local patch, where she can take you off the beaten track and show you some fabulous wildlife and scenery right on her doorstep! The new Hidden Gem walks were all discovered on her local patch during the 1st lockdown in 2020.

There are several routes to choose from - Swanbister Bay, Orphir Bay, Houton Bay or Gruf Hill. Some of these can also be combined to form a longer walk, see Hidden Gem Walks - Long for more information.

Short walks are approx 2-3 hours in length, and the terrain can be rough underfoot.

It is possible to use the local bus service for all of these walks. Please mention this at the time of booking for more information.

Wild Orkney Walks

Wild Orkney Walks offers guided walks all year round. The walks cover a variety of habitats, from busy seabird cliffs and stunning coastline, to colourful wildflower meadows and white sandy beaches. Whether you would like to see Hen Harriers, Primula Scotica, our charismatic Puffins, or even some of our winter specialities like the Mountain Hares or Long Tailed Ducks, there will be a walk to suit you. Due to Covid-19 our max group size is now 6 and is restricted to one household/family group/social bubble. We are currently unable to offer our service of Wildlife Guiding.
