This tour departs from Kirkwall, passing through the Viking town and passing by the magnificent St. Magnus Cathedral before heading out into the rural landscape of Orkney’s East Mainland.
After a scenic drive you will arrive at ‘The Gloup’, a geological feature where a sea cave has collapsed, leaving a dramatic chasm.
Your knowledgeable local guide will then escort you on a walking tour along the clifftops. You’ll pass ‘The Gloup’ before continuing to the natural promontory called the ‘Brough of Deerness’. This rocky outcrop was once a clifftop settlement. The tour will continue a little further along the cliffs for spectacular views over Mull Head and some of the smaller offshore islands.
As well as the dramatic scenery, the cliffs are also a haven for cliff birds and local flora. You will then return to the coach to make the return trip back to Kirkwall.
