... along with Iona, Newgrange, Stonehenge, Glastonbury and many other sites, Orkney is acknowledged as one of the world's "thin places": a place where the veil between this world and the others is particularly permeable.
Orkney calls and tugs the souls of so many people, making it the perfect place for pilgrimage.
Here are just some of the reasons why people visit Orkney:
Astoundingly important and well-preserved archaeology
Some of the best wildlife in the world
Folklore, traditions and legends - selkies, Fin Folk, trowies & witches
Delicious food and drink
Foot-tapping traditional and folk music!
Vibrant arts and crafts
Peace and quiet
... and incredibly friendly and hospitable people
Why use a tourist guide?
A good guide will provide you with insight and depth of knowledge of the local area. If you haven't got very long in Orkney, a guide will help you to make the best use of your time. A guide will know which sites have to be pre-booked well in advance to save disappointment (and will do the pre-booking for you). A guide may save you money by designing an efficient route and advising on the cheapest ways to buy tickets and souvenirs.
