Kirkwall is the largest town and capital of the Orkney Islands of Scotland. Explore Kirkwall's surroundings by going to Skara Brae (in Stromness), Birsay (Earl's Palace, Brough Of Birsay, & more) and Dunnet (Dunnet Head Lighthouse & Mary Ann's Cottage). There's lots more to do: sample the fine beverages at Highland Park Distillery, don't miss a visit to Cuween Hill Chambered Cairn, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Saint Magnus Cathedral, and browse the collection at Orkney Library & Archive.
