Our historic attractions feature highly on the to-do list of the thousands of visitors who travel to Orkney each year. The magnificent St Magnus Cathedral, the 5,000-year-old Neolithic village of Skara Brae, the ancient stone circles at Brodgar and Stenness and the excavation work at the Ness of Brodgar are amongst the biggest draws. But others come for the beautiful scenery, abundant wildlife and some of the very best food and drink anywhere in the UK.

Whether you take a drive, bike ride, tour or walk, there is a pace and place in Orkney to suit everyone.
