Guided Tours of Orkney

A guided tour is the way to make the most of everything Orkney has to offer. Whether you're more interested in the archaeology, crafts, wildlife, culture or scenery, a personal tour from an Orcadian guide ensures you make the most of every minute in these beautiful and surprising islands.

Visiting Orkney for the day?
If you are visiting on a cruise ship or want to include a day-trip to Orkney in your tour of Scotland, you can be collected from the pier and shown the best of what these islands have to offer.

In Orkney for a few days?
A tour on the first day will introduce you to the islands and give you the inside information you need for the rest of your stay, or you can book for more than one day and be shown even more.

Tracing your Orkney connections?
A tour especially tailored for you can take you to where your ancestors lived and can show you what Orkney was like when they left. Local research can be done before you arrive or the tour can include an introduction to the wonderful local archives.
