Guide Books

We have found Charles Tait's book 'The Orkney Guide' a superb aid when traveling in Orkney. It has 656 pages of useful information, history and things to do. An essential too for any visitor or the first or subsequent visit. It can be purchased in one of Orkney's many shops or directly on Charles's website. He also publishes several other shorter guides for Orkney.
