Orkney

Beschrijving

Group of islands off Scotland's north coast, attractive combination of rural life and the wild ocean. Rich birdlife and spectacular rugged coastline. Well known is The Old Man of Hoy, a 137 m high vertical sea stack. There are no long distance paths set out on the island, but many shorter walks can be made.
