This unforgettable three-night experience for two adults will take you to the spectacular Orkney Islands where you’ll explore the fascinating Heart of Neolithic Orkney, experience breathtaking natural landscapes, admire traditional craftsmanship and learn about the world-famous whisky.
The prize for two adults includes:
- Return ferry travel courtesy of Pentland Ferries
Hop aboard the shortest and quickest sea route to Orkney with your car, and travel across the Pentland Firth on a one-hour crossing with Pentland Ferries. An Orkney-owned family business running the ferry service connecting Gills Bay in the North East of Scotland to St Margaret’s Hope in Orkney. Experience the new purpose-built ship – MV Alfred – the most environmentally-friendly ferry of its kind in Scotland!
- A three-night stay at The Storehouse Restaurant with Rooms
Stay for three nights at The Storehouse Restaurant with Rooms in the heart of Kirkwall, and relax in the unique surroundings of a stunning 19th Century Grade B listed former herring and pork curing store, sympathetically renovated to an exceptional standard by knitwear designer Judith Glue and David Spence. You’ll be treated to a superior room with breakfast on each morning and an evening meal, full of delicious local Orkney produce, and a bottle of house wine on one evening.
- A guided tour of Skara Brae
Head out of Kirkwall and enjoy a guided tour of Skara Brae, the best-preserved Neolithic settlement in Western Europe. Step back 5,000 years – long before Stonehenge or even the Egyptian Pyramids – and explore a once thriving village. Visit a replica Neolithic house, see artefacts including gaming dice, tools, furniture and jewellery, and imagine what life was like for the farmers, hunters and fishermen who lived there.
- An Orcadian Vintages Experience tour and a bottle of 18 year-old Highland Park Whisky
Visit Highland Park Distillery and embark on an Orcadian Vintages Experience tour for the ultimate, authentic behind-the-scenes tour. Meet the modern-day Viking descendants who make this world-famous whisky. Sample whisky straight from the cask in the warehouse and be guided through a tutored tasting of four spectacular Highland Park Vintages, as well as an exclusive single cask bottling. You’ll also receive your own tasting glass, a signed framed certificate, a book and a bottle of 18 year-old Highland Park Whisky.
