The Orkney archipelago, off the north-east coast of Scotland, contains some of the oldest and best-preserved Neolithic sites in Europe, and the “Heart of Neolithic Orkney” is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Orkney has been inhabited for over 8,000 years and has a fascinating history which, apart from the Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Age periods, covers the last two millennia right up to its WWI and WWII period within which the Scapa Flow has remained an icon. Of course, for the naturalist there is also an abundance of marine and avian wildlife to enjoy. The itinerary will include a visit to the island of Rousay and two private, guided visits to open archaeological excavation sites.  A detailed itinerary will be sent out shortly.

THE TOUR WILL BE LIMITED TO 20 PARTICIPANTS
