I am an ‘Orcadian’, that is to say I was born and bred in Orkney, where my family have farmed for generations. My wife Jane and I have a small farm, just outside Kirkwall overlooking Scapa Flow. I am passionate about the history and culture of Orkney and I do not consider it a chore to supplement my farming income by showing visitors around Orkney in general and Kirkwall in particular.
I offer tours of all the major archaeological sites on the Orkney Mainland, as a ‘step on guide’ in your own, or a third party vehicle. I played the traditional Kirkwall street football game ‘The Ba’, for over thirty years. So in addition to all the usual tours, I offer a unique Kirkwall walking tour following the Ba’s route and explaining the finer points of the game. I can also offer Itinerary, transport and accommodation advice, planning and/or booking to make the most of you or your groups’ visit to Orkney.
