Scotland's Highlands & Islands travel guide

Scotland's Highlands & Islands - Orkney & Shetland (Chapter)

3rd Edition Feb 2015

This is the Orkney & Shetland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Scotland’s Highlands & Is-lands guidebook.

For the Vikings, the jaunt across the North Sea from Norway was as easy as a stroll down to the local mead hall and they soon controlled these windswept, treeless archipelagos, laying down longhouses alongside stony remains of ancient prehistoric settlements.

  • shaking your head in astonishment at extraordinary Skara Brae and Maes Howe, prehistoric perfection that predates the pyramids
  • maps
  • soaking up the glorious scenery of Hoy and make the hike to the spectacular Old Man of Hoy
  • transport
  • island-hopping the magical Northern Islands of Orkney, where crystal azure waters lap against glittering white-sand beaches
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Orkney, Kirkwall, East Mainland to South Ronaldsay, West & North Mainland, Stromness, Hoy, Northern Islands, Shetland, Lerwick, Bressay & Noss, Central & West Mainland, South Mainland, North Mainland, and The North Isles.
