OUTING AND WALK: FLOTTA – A HIDDEN GEM
Join Orkney wildlife guide Megan Taylor of Wild Orkney Walks on a day trip to the island of Flotta. Our island adventure will start with the ferry crossing where we will keep an eye out for wildlife. Once on Flotta, we will explore the naval cinema and plantation, before enjoying a leisurely walk around the island taking in the wartime heritage, beautiful scenery, a variety of wildlife and of course, the Flotta Penguins!
NB It is possible to use the local bus service for this walk, Stagecoach service No 2 from Kirkwall to Houton which connects with the ferries. Please note the ferry fare is included in the price.
