The Private House Stay's Guide


A short ferry crossing off the North coast gets you to magical islands of the Orkneys - a fertile and spirtual place that contains over 12,000 neolithic ruins, standing stones and burial chambers. The Old Man of Hoy is one of climbing's great landmarks. Scapa Flow was also a huge seabase in the Second World War and the site of the scuttling of the First World War German High Seas Fleet and a great sports diving location. Whether island hopping by ferry or plane, visiting Skara Brae or the Ring of Brodgar, there is much to do in Orkney and its remote location stops too many tourists.
