Hi I’m Jean Ross your personal guide, born and brought up in Orkney. I have been a Green Badge Tourist Guide since 2008. Orkney may not look big on the map, but when you get here it's huge! We have a history stretching back 9,000 years, set in stunning natural surroundings, so there's lots to see.  Let me take you on a tour in my mini bus with 8 seats you can have a private tour or join others for a day to remember.  I would love to show you my home....

Orkney is rich in archaeology and history, boasting a diverse range of sites to visit, including Skara Brae, Standing Stones Circles, Brochs, Viking, Earls and Lairds also World War history  to the modern day.  

Skara Brae Orkney
Gannet Westray Orkney

Our wildlife 

includes spectacular seabird colonies, birds of prey, otters, seals and cetaceans. Wild flowers are abundant in the summer months and add a splash of colour to stunning walks along the cliffs and seashores.

Our scenery is breathtaking. Soft rolling farmland and heather clad hills stretch across the islands. The sea and sky change colour all the time in the varying light.  A paradise for artists and Photographers alike.
