Are you ready to explore Orkney this autumn?

The islands are the perfect place to escape to, with the promise of wide open spaces, wonderful wildlife, and thousands of years of history to uncover.

Our ancient sites are often quieter at this time of year, and you can always find your own space on one of our beautiful beaches or out on our breathtaking coastline. And when the wild weather rolls in, you can retreat indoors for some of the finest food to be found anywhere, award-winning beers, whiskies, and gins, and even a story or two.

Orkney is alive with possibility during autumn. Plot a course for the islands over the coming months and experience it all for yourself.

We've picked some of our favourite seasonal blogs and activities below for you to explore so you can start planning your islands adventure.

From the great outdoors, to attractions, activities, and all the rest, you won't be short of things to see and do.
