I AM NOT OFFERING TOURS JULY/AUG 2020, I WILL RE-ASSESS THE SITUATION IN SEPTEMBER. SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED.

If you are hiring me as your travel guide, then our day would start by visiting the archaeological sites that are spread across the island. There are more than 140 of them.

The island has been inhabited for more than 5000 years and these sites are proof of that. We will travel to Midhowe Broch and Chambered Cairn which are two of the finest archaeological sites across the Orkney islands. You should wear comfortable footwear as these places are only accessible by foot. We will have our lunch here.

The next on the list will be visits to the Knowe of Yarso, Blackhammer cairn and the two-storied Taversoe Tuick.

The island has a diverse group of animals that you might see during the travel. We will visit Saviskaill Bay where you can see seals and if lucky, otters as well. You should carry a camera or you might miss your chance of capturing some breath-taking moments. We will also visit Sourin bay, from where you can see most of the other islands.

If there is time, we can visit Trumland House Gardens and enjoy its beautiful orchards. All-in-all, depending upon the weather, you will have an adventurous day that you will remember for years to come.
