Our guide to exploring the Orkney islands

We want to make sure that you get the very best from your stay – and that you will want to keep coming back to enjoy all that the islands have to offer, so we have created a map that will take you to Orkney’s well known – and not so well known – attractions.

We hope you enjoy your visit.

Want a physical copy of our map?

A paper copy of our Orkney Islands map is available to purchase from our website. The map folds out to A2 size. One side has a map showing A roads, B roads, inter island ferry routes, other key geographic markers and our hand picked points of interest. The other side contains a brief description of all 80 points of interest and a selection of photos.
