Orkney is a fabulous place to go on a family holiday. Endless beaches, endless fun!
As a mother of two, I know the places to go with children so that they can have fun, while the adults have a great experience, too. The “Orkney with Kids” tour mixes a variety of sites and experiences so that no-one will be bored. A great day out for all the family.
The Iron Age Broch of Gurness: Perfect for hide and seek! But with interesting archaeology for mum and dad!
Evie beach: Sand to play in, seals in the water, and hundreds of multi-coloured shells to find. What has been washed up today? Made famous by Victoria Whitworth’s book Swimming with Seals, the Evie beach holds so many stories! Playtime and storytelling on the beach with exciting stories from Orkney’s history, saga, and folklore.
See how Orkney Cheese is made! We visit the Orkney cheese factory at Hatston, where the milk from the cows we have seen in the fields around us is turned into cheddar cheese.
Farm visit: What are the animals up to today? (Subject to availability, must be booked in good time as it gets booked up quickly)
