    INCLUDED EXCURSIONS


    Italian Chapel, Orkney
    Full Day: Orkney (Scapa Flow, Churchill Barriers, Italian Chapel, Kirkwall)
    Today we travel around the edge of Scapa Flow and cross the famous Churchill Barriers. Formally opened just before the end of the war, their role was not as a defence for Scapa Flow as originally planned, but as a series of causeways linking the five islands together. We also visit the beautifully decorated Italian Chapel which was built by prisoners of war, then make our way to Kirkwall, the capital of Orkney. Kirkwall is a vibrant town with great shops and is also home to St Magnus Cathedral, Britain’s most northerly Cathedral.
    Ring of Brodgar, Orkney
    Full Day: Orkney (Skara Brae, Stones of Stenness, Ring of Brodgar & Skaill House)
    Excursion of Orkney. This morning we meet our guide and start our guided tour visiting Skara Brae, a perfectly preserved Neolithic village that was first discovered in 1850 when a strong winter storm battered Orkney.  From here we visit the Stones of Stenness and the nearby Ring of Brodgar – part of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site. We’ll also visit Skaill House, the finest 17th century mansion in Orkney.
