The 2017 Orkney Visitor Guide is available now

The new 2017 Orkney Visitor Guide from Orkney Tourism Group has been launched, featuring all the inspiration and information you need to come and visit our islands.

The sixty-seven page guide is packed with information on Orkney, including recommended sites to visit, a focus on our nature and wildlife and much more. The guide also includes full details of Orkney Tourism Group members, with details of where to stay in the islands.

This year the front cover features the Ness of Brodgar archaeological site, tying in with next year’s national theme of History, Heritage and Archaeology. The image was taken by Jim Richardson and has been provided via support from the Ness of Brodgar Trust. The 2017 dig dates at the incredible site in the heart of Orkney's UNESCO World Heritage Site are still to be confirmed, but it's anticipated work will begin at the start of July. Find out more via the official website.

You can view the guide via the Visit Orkney website or arrange for a copy to be sent to you. The guide is also available at tourist destinations across Orkney.
