About Orkney Islands:

The Islands of Orkney are a group of about 70 islands, around 20 of which are inhabited and are situated 10km from the north-east tip of the Scottish Mainland.
The largest island, known as 'the mainland’, is home to most of the island groups population but the main north islands of Shapinsay, Gairsay, Stronsay, Wyre, Rousay, Egilsay, Eday, Sanday, Westray, Papa Westray and North Ronaldsay and the south islands of Graemsay, Hoy, South Walls, Burray, Flotta and South Ronaldsay are also populated as well as a few other small islands that also have permanent or seasonal residents.
The islands of Orkney are mainly low lying—a gently rolling landscape of green fields, heather moorland heath and lochs (lakes).
