Larger group tours

We are happy to cater for larger groups such as archaeology societies who wish us to run a members’ group visit to Orkney, and have organised a number of such events in the past. In 2015 for example we were entirely responsible for the highly successful Council for British Archaeology Members' trip to Orkney, and later that same year a conference excursion for delegates to the Association of European Archaeologists Conference in Glasgow.


We have an excellent working relationship with the Ayre Hotel on Kirkwall’s harbour front, which allows us to make large group bookings in the main season, when space in all Orkney hotels is at a premium. Please contact us at least 2 years before your intended group visit, to enable us to give you our best attention and to ensure you can have your first choice of dates. It may be possible to accommodate your group at shorter notice, but hotel availability may be limited.  

We can offer you a complete service with local coach hire in a range of configurations to suit your group size, from 15 seat luxury mini coaches, 33 seat midi coaches or full sized coach. Our local knowledge means we can plan your itinerary to ensure you see the best that Orkney has to offer, when the sites are at their quietest.

Our status as Orkney’s only archaeologist run tour operator means that we are legally able to offer you all-inclusive tours fully compliant with the legal requirements of the Package travel and Linked Travel Arrangement Regulations 2018. We have full Tour Operators Liability Insurance, Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance and copies can be supplied on request.
