Orkney Islands Info

Hello NLMCler.
I am going to Orkney Islands beginning of June with a group of German friends.
Do you have any tips and route suggestions?
Any of you got a guide book I could borrow or that you suggest buying?


Northern Highlands North is the definitive guide but Gary Latter’s Scottish Rock (Vol 2) is many people’s weapon of choice, including mine. I’ve not made it to Orkney myself yet but I am sure @dabarlow will have recommendations.

The Old Man of Hoy is the obvious candidate:

I can pass a nhn guide to Tom this weekend if it’s of use.
