When does my tour start?
- This tour generally departs in the morning but can be fixed to suit your cruise ship porting times.

After meeting your driver, you will depart Kirkwall and head into the west of Mainland, Orkney’s largest island.  This tour passes through the gentle rolling landscape of Orkney and into the Neolithic Heartland of Orkney; an area designated as a World Heritage Site due to its wealth of pre-historic archaeology.  Passing the Standing Stones of Stenness (photo-stop if time permits), we will stop at the Ring of Brodgar; a huge ceremonial circle of stones dating back almost 5000 years.  We then continue on to the 5000-year-old village of Skara Brae, beautifully interpreted in the visitor centre.  See the remarkable dwellings revealed from beneath the sand dunes by storms only 150 years ago.  There will also be time to visit the nearby manor house of Skaill House, built in 1620 on top of an ancient graveyard.

We then continue this circular route and follow the coastline of Scapa Flow, made famous for its role in both World Wars.  Hear some of the stories from your guide today en route back to Kirkwall.
