Join me for a genealogy research tour to Orkney.
The tour is scheduled for May 24-31, 2020. We will be staying at the Shore Hotel.
Arrival will be on the Sunday and check out on the following Sunday. This allows time to just enjoy Orkney.
We will be stationed in Kirkwall which has the magnificent St Magnus Cathedral and the Bishop's Palace.
The tour fees are $2995 canadian and include:
· 7 nights hotel
· 7 breakfasts
· 3 days of research
· Day trip around the western half of Mainland Orkney
· Day trip around the eastern side of Mainland Orkney
· Ring of Brodgar and Stones of Stenness
· Skara Brae & Skaill House
· The Bishops Palace
· Maes Howe
· Churchill Barriers
· Italian Chapel (additional £3)
I can take people into Stromness for a stroll. It is a lovely wee place, full of history. The buildings have historical plaques on them letting you know their history. The museum is small but well worth a visit. We can return via the round church in Orphir. If you would like to go to any of the smaller islands, I recommend you plan additional time in Orkney.
** non researchers are welcome. If accompanying a researcher, there will be a discount. If you wish to see Orkney without researching, your fees will be the same as the researcher fees.
