About Us

The qualified Orkney tour guides you're likely to meet are Lorna and her daughter Carrie. Other members of the family help out with driving.

Our family are originally from one of Orkney's small North Islands called Westray. We moved to Kirkwall on the Mainland of Orkney in 2012, after the sale of our farm. On Westray we were beef farmers - one of Orkney's main industries.

We have many and varied interests and hobbies. Lorna is a keen golfer, photographer and loves delving into family history. Carrie enjoys local music and has played the violin (fiddle) for 20 years. She also makes excellent use of our beautiful shorelines searching for bottle messages and other treasures. Both Lorna and Carrie have qualified as STGA (Scottish Tour Guide Association) Green Badge guides therefore we have knowledge as well as experience of Orkney.

We feel our Orkney tours give you a real taste of the Isles. We have lived here all our lives so you'll get to hear the local dialect and find out what we think makes Orkney so special. We hope you'll think it's special too!
