Here at 59º north, 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.

If nature's energy is not enough, you won't want to miss the annual Orkney Folk Festival in May – a fantastic celebration that brings together some of the best musicians for an explosion of musical talent.
