Join Orkney wildlife guide Megan Taylor of Wild Orkney Walks on a short walk into the Orphir hills with a footpath all the way.
”Although just a small hill, the views from the top of Gruf Hill are absolutely stunning on a clear day, with visibility stretching right over Scapa Flow to mainland Scotland.”

It is possible to use the local bus service for this walk, Stagecoach service No 2 from Kirkwall to Houton can stop at the Scorradale layby on request.
