Relax and Play Along the Gorgeous Orkney Islands
The Orkney Islands can be found along the coast of northern Scotland. The archipelago consists of a total of 70 separate islands including 20 that are inhabited. The biggest land mass in the group is the sixth largest island in Scotland and the tenth largest among the British Isles. This area is a fascinating natural landscape of tremendous beauty. Travellers looking for a taste of the sea and a bit of lovely countryside should plan a ferry ride to this charming water bound locale.

The Weather is Always Amicable on the Orkney Islands
Scotland’s Orkney Islands are a far cry from tropical paradise, but that doesn’t mean the weather isn’t amicable. Despite their northerly position, this region generally sees steady weather with a yearly average of 8 degrees Celsius (46 degrees Fahrenheit). The summer season brings with it an average of 12 degrees Celsius (54 degrees Fahrenheit) while winter usually drops to around 4 degrees Celsius (39 degrees Fahrenheit).

Authentic Gifts Make Great Memories
Tankerness, a district located in Mainland, Orkney, is home to Sheila Fleet Jewellery. This popular local business features a workshop and gift shop managed by silver and gold jewellery designer Sheila Fleet. The collections vary, with exciting pieces that are unlike anything you will see elsewhere. Some Fleet designs even capture the spirit of the sea, with items like those found among their fluid inspired Wave Collection. Take a break from strolling along the beaches to stop by and see what delightful treasures await you in Tankerness!

A Taste of Orkney Island History
Hoy is the second largest island in Orkney. This breathtaking area includes dramatic coastline views as well as many ancient landmarks. This is where the curious Dwarfie Stane can be found. This megalithic structure is the only rock cut tomb in all of Britain. Experts believe that the location dates as far back as 3000 BC.

The Berriedale Wood is another timeless landmark that is believed to have existed before 5000 BC.  Numerous plant species and wildlife thrive here. Many of those species are currently extinct on all neighbouring islands.

If you adore epic scenery, then the Old Man of Hoy is another unique spot to visit. This structure is a 450 foot sea stack that is recognised as one of the most famous in Hoy.  Visitors should expect to spend approximately three hours to walk from Rackwick to the Old Man of Hoy. Much of the way is rugged track and may be physically taxing however it is well worth the journey!
