The Orkney Islands represent an outstanding archipelago located in north of Scotland, with approximately 70 islands, of which only 16 are inhabited. The Orkney Islands can be divided into three regions: North Isles, Mainland, and South Isles.
If you come here you will discover an amazing ancient human settlement which has been inhabited for almost 5500 years by Neolithic tribes, so that today it is home to one of the oldest and very well conserved sites in the world. The place is fulfilled with brochs, old cemeteries as
old as 2000 years, tombstones and magnificent viking ruins. The Heart of Neolithic Orkney is now an assigned UNESCO World Heritage site, also having amazing Renaissance castles and medieval churches.
If you want to come here, the only possibility is to use the means of transportation by plane or by sea. The primary airplane that takes you to the Orkney Islands is Loganair, but you can also try to take the ferry from any place of Scotland to Orkney. But pay attention! On some islands, the entry to people and tourists is forbidden, so be careful not to break the rules from here.
Once you reach here, you will feel like you stepped in heaven: peace and relaxation. If you love fishing, then this is the perfect place for this because the waters provide the best fishing spots in the world, but you can also take the opportunity to do some water sports like boating or scuba diving.
