Hello and welcome to the October newsletter from Visitorkney.com.

Every month we bring you a snapshot of life here in Orkney, hopefully to inspire you to spend some time in our islands - be it for a short trip or a more permanent stay. This month we'll be looking at some of the local events you can enjoy in Orkney in October.

We'd love to hear from you too - get in touch through Facebook, Twitter or Orkney.com and tell us all about your experiences of the islands.

The October issue includes a full round up of the month's events and activities, as well as a special focus on wildlife. Learn about one of Orkney's hidden destinations and enjoy the work of another talented local photographer.
