In the Orkneys, we visited the Italian Chapel, built by WWII Italian POWs. It was a beautiful story and a pleasant visit. We also saw the Churchill Barriers around Scapa Flow and enjoyed the related war stories. Finally, we visited the Highland Park Distillery and saw how they distilled Scotch Whiskey; quite interesting. All in all, a very pleasant and informative visit. Read Less

This was a waste of time. There was little to see or do in this small port. The excursion went to this small village, but didn't stop at several neolithic sights.

Did our own walking tour of bishops palace and st Magnus cathedral. Don't miss the £1.20 store! Lots of good stuff in there. Read Less

There is a free shuttle bus service to and from the cruise terminal into the centre of Kirkwall although I chose to walk both ways. Once in Kirkwall there is a quite Main Street, a church and ruined castle to visit.
