Orkney is bigger on the inside. There is far more to see and do than you would ever guess. If your time here is limited a tour with a local guide can make the most of every minute.If you are lucky enough to be spending several days here, a tour at the beginning of your holiday can show you what Orkney has to offer and help to plan what else you want to do.


I grew up on a small farm on the shores of the Stenness Loch, hearing my parents' stories about local characters and traditions and about growing up in war-time Orkney. Now I use the local archives and the internet to research Orkney's recent history and what Orcadians have done in the wider world. Take a look at my website to see some of their amazing stories.


Whether your interest is in Orkney's past or its present, I can arrange a tour to suit you.


If you are hoping to learn about family connections with Orkney, I can help you find out more and perhaps visit the places that would have been familiar to your relatives.
