Hampshire Hikes & Historical Sites
Bring intriguing coastal trails and history alive in South Hampshire
The Orkney Islands have something for everyone. There's stunning coastal walking, fascinating history, World Heritage archaeological sites and beautiful scenery.
The classic harbour sounds of seagulls, yachts, and fishing boats create a sense of the surrounding sea. This remains as you uncover evidence of human habitation dating back to the beginning of time. Roam the margins between sea and land, along deserted cliffs, welcoming villages and across treeless landscapes dotted with monuments. Orkney is a unique and mystical place.
We stay in the village of Stromness to take advantage of the stunning coastal walking opportunities. Our programme offers an interest to the naturalist and historian among you, plus a full and exciting week filled with visual delights.
We walk to the Kitchener Memorial, Wideford Hill burial chamber, and (subject to ferries) the Old Man of Hoy. We plan to include walking tours of Kirkwall, Stromness and Birsay, and visits to the Ring of Brodgar, RSPB sites and many other attractions.
NO Single Room Supplement - rooms without a supplement are subject to availability.
