Cruise ship at Hatston Pier near Kirkwall


Cruise ship tours have a set itinerary which can be inflexible leaving little time to explore.


We will meet your ship at the dock.


We can take you to some of the smaller places in Orkney where the ship's tours cannot go, because there is no coach  parking.


Our tours are flexible. 

We always try to include the places which you most want to see in Orkney.


We do our best to avoid the crowds on busy cruise ship days.

*However please note that Skara Brae is one of the most visited sites and will always be busy."


If you wish to share your tour with other ship's passengers it can spread the cost and could make your tour cheaper than the ship's tours.

The Ness of Brodgar archaeological dig is open from beginning of July to the end of August.  There is no parking for coaches so only small groups can visit it.  It is a  large ceremonial site which is changing our ideas about the neolithic in Orkney 5,000 years ago.
