Orkney is steeped in history, so on our second day we set off to see some of the amazing historical sights.
We started at Skara Brae. A Neolithic village which is older than both Stone Henge and The Great Pyramids.
You can also go into the bizarre house of the Laird who discovered Skara Brae; filled with trinkets from all over the world and his wives wardrobe which is to die for.
Afterwards we headed off to the Ring of Brodgar; a henge – much like Stone Henge – which is veiled in mystery but was used by the tanks in the war to practice agility.
The history of Orkney is still appearing as just down the road we stumbled upon an actual archeological dig – Yes I geeked out majorly.
Lastly we walked down to the Standing Stones of Stenness.
Now if that all seems like too much history in one day there is a convenient bus tour which gives you little time slot at each site so your not overwhelmed.
We finished off our educational day with dinner at the Stromness Hotel.
The food was absolutely amazing and the staff were lovely.
Make sure you didn’t miss Day One of our adventures.
Peace Out and Pixie Dust XO
