Visit this vibrant and culturally rich area that is home to ancient ruins and archeological sites that pre-date the pyramids of Egypt.

Orkney, or the Orkney Islands, is an archipelago of some 70 islands off the northern coast of Scotland. The largest of the islands is called Mainland and has been inhabited for at least 8,500 years.

The Orkneys are a vibrant and culturally rich area and are home to ancient ruins and archeological sites that pre-date the pyramids of Egypt! The UNESCO World Heritage Site the Heart of Neolithic Orkney is a must see for history buffs, and includes the settlement at Skara Brae, the Ring of Brodgar, Stones of Stenness and Maeshowe Chambered Cairn.

Add award-winning beaches to the mix and you will see why the Orkney Islands are such a popular spot for visitors.
