Hi I’m Jean Ross your personal guide, born and brought up in Orkney. I have been a Green Badge Tourist Guide since 2008. Orkney may not look big on the map, but when you get here it's huge! We have a history stretching back 9,000 years, set in stunning natural surroundings, so there's lots to see. Let me take you on a tour in my comfortable 8 passenger mini bus, you can have a private tour or join others for a day to remember. I would love to show you my home….
I have guided all of Orkney’s main archaeological visitor attractions and also know some quieter and more secluded places to visit. My tours can be tailored to suit your interests and requirements. Archaeology, heritage and folklore tours along with general wildlife walks focusing on the islands birdlife, mammals, wildflowers and geology.
I have lived in Orkney all my life, with a childhood spent playing in 8 feet snow drifts on the farm and learning to swim in the chilly waters of Scapa Flow! The longer I live in Orkney the more I see and appreciate the beauty around me.
