Orkney is well worth a visit. It is green, farming and fishing country and it's people know the true meaning of hospitality. If you love archaeology then you will be in heaven. Skara Brae, Maeshowe, Tomb of the Eagles are only a handful of the many sites to visit. The two towns of Kirkwall and Stromness are good bases for your holiday but there are many good hotels and bed and breakfasts and self-catering to choose from all over the main island. Then there are all the other smaller islands to visit all with daily ferries. Food is local and very good. There are many fine walks and some spectacular coastal scenery so a camera is essential as is all weather clothing. I had a super sunny, calm week but you have to be prepared for windy, inclement weather also. It is the British Isles!!!! You won't be disappointed.
