A day in Orkney's capital

It was another early start to the day for us with Azamara Journey arriving in Orkney's capital and largest town of Kirkwall at 8:00am and we had a tour booked to leave straight away. The weather was cool, which wasn't surprising for our most Northern port of call on this voyage. There was, of course, a voyage standard chance of rain in the forecast.

Standing Stones of Stenness, Ring of Brodgar and Skara Brae

Our tour guide for day turned out to be excellent - an English fellow who had lived for a number of years in Orkney. His love and passion for the region and its history was clearly evident and the way he guided the tour suited us very well indeed.
