Kirkwall - Wartime Orkney & Scapa Flow (half day)

The great natural harbour of Scapa Flow is known by name to many. It was the epicentre of dramatic events which changed the course of history during the first and second world wars. This tour follows the coast of Scapa Flow along to Houton ferry terminal, Britain’s first seaplane base in the first world water and later a major campsite. The ferry crossing sails where the German Fleet lay intervened during the first war and where 7 great battleships still lie on Scapa Flow’s seabed. Landing on Hoy we stroll to the Scapa Flow Visitor Centre where a spectacular display of Scapa Flow awaits.
