Itinerary

– Standing Stones of Stenness (30′)
Originally there were twelve stones, some standing up to six metres high. Today only four remain. The function is unclear but our best guess is that they were involved in activities and ceremonies celebrating the relationship between living and past communities.

– Ring of Brodgar (40′)
The second stop, Ring of Brodgar is the finest known circular late Neolithic or early Bronze Age stone ring. Get your cameras ready to take some great pictures !!

– Italian Chapel (40′)
The Italian Chapel is a beautiful Roman Catholic chapel in Lamb Holm which was constructed by Italian POWs during the Second World War.

– St, Magnus Cathedral (60′)
Also known as the “light in the North”, it was founded in 1137 by the Viking Earl Rognvald in honour of his uncle St. Magnus who was martyred in Orkney.

– Kirkwall town (60′)
Kirkwall is a bustling, busy town, but it’s one with a historic centre full of character.
