Spring in Orkney brings new beginnings, longer days and big, bright skies.
With winter forgotten about for another year, there is a real sense of a fresh start across the islands as spring appears on the horizon. Sure, the weather can still be stormy and the Orcadian breeze will continue to blow, but those extra minutes and hours of daylight provide more time to awaken your senses and take in everything Orkney has to offer.
The vast majority of our visitor attractions and sites have already opened their doors so there is plenty to see and do, and a spring visit also offers the opportunity to see our popular places in peace before the summer season begins in earnest.
If you're looking for a spring break somewhere special then start planning your Orkney adventure today. We've picked out some of our favourite seasonal blogs and activity ideas to help you draw up your islands itinerary.
