Explore the lush natural terrain of Orkney's largest Island during this journey to the Brough of Birsay and Neolothic Heartland of Orkney, a World Heritage Site.

Depart Kirkwall for the drive along the West Coast of Mainland, Orkney's largest island. Along the way, you will pass through the rolling countryside of the islands, and view the Northern Isles of Orkney in the distance.

Next, you will pass by Eynnhallow Sound, a dramatic stretch of water where the Atlantic Ocean meets the North Sea, before pausing at the small tidal island at the Brough of Birsay. Here, a brief photo stop will be made to take in the spectacular views and photo opportunities before continuing on to a local tearoom for refreshments. You will then proceed for a visit to the Neolothic Heartland of Orkney, a World Heritage Site. Upon arrival, a stop will be made at the Standing Stones of Stenness, a 5,000-year-old circle of stones.

Following your tour, you will rejoin your coach for the return drive to Kirkwall, traveling along the north shore of Scapa Flow. Along the way, your guide will share with you some of the wartime stories that make this one of the most well-known stretches of water in the world.

Please note: This tour includes a moderate amount of walking. While the tour is available to guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have a companion to assist them, there is some soft and uneven ground at the Standing Stones of Stennes. Some guests may wish to stay aboard the coach at that stop. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Warm, weather appropriate clothing and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. Guests should be prepared for the possibility of rain. The order of the sites viewed or visited may vary.
