    Orkney Islands Highlights Day Trip from John OGroats

    This tour visits some of the main sites of interest on the Orkney Islands.

    The tour is similar to the Full Day Tour but does not visit Stromness, some stops are shorter and there is about 1 hour in Kirkwall.Orkney Islands Highlights Day Trip from John OGroats

    route as the Maxi Day Tour but misses out the visit to Stromness. This tour allows only 1 hour at Skara Brae and 1 hour in the capital town Kirkwall.

    "I had a fantastic time through Scotland Tours, I would recommend the company to others. Everything was great, the highlight had to be the boat ride on loch Ness. The guide & service was well organised"
