Check out our cheap car rental at Kirkwall Airport offers now. Kirkwall Airport serves the Orkney Islands in Scotland. It is located two and a half miles southeast of Kirkwall. The Airport is used by Flybe franchise service, operated by Loganair. Kirkwall was established in 1046 and is the capital of the Orkney’s. Unsurprisingly there’s a great deal of culture around these islands. The Orkney Islands have also been under Norwegian and Danish rule in the past as well.
There are close to seventy islands to explore within the Orkney’s, so you won’t get bored and you’ll certainly want to make the most of your time here. There are over six hundred miles of coastline around the Orkney’s so if you love coastal walks and looking out to the sea, you’ll love it here. Should you want something much more active, then why not go cycling, play golf, try sailing, appreciate a couple of days fishing, go walking, or go diving close to Scapa Flow? Or invest more time right here and try everything! Should you like old buildings then St Magus cathedral is really worth a visit and is stated to be among the finest medieval constructions in the North of Scotland.
You will not want to miss the Bishop’s Palace and the Earl’s Palace while you’re here as well. Keep in mind to take the shortest scheduled flight in the world whenever you visit Kirkwall. The flight from the island of Westray to Papa Westray takes just 2 minutes.
