Loads to see in Orkney. It is a mecca for archealogists.
Skara Brae (5,000 year-old neolithic village).
Maes Howe (Best presevered prehistoric tomb in western europe, also have largest collection of norse runes outside of scandinavia).
Ring of Brodgar (36 Standing stones, dates to around 2,800 BC).
St Magnus Cathedral (Norse, dates to about 1137).
Churchill Barriers (World War II defensive blockades). Orkney Museum (suberb collection of ancient and aged artefacts).
Just breathe, open your eyes. Its all really beautiful here.
Castles, lochs, mountains, eagles, deer, seals, dolphins, sea/beaches and towns and cities for those that like that too.
I can recommend scenic walks, drives and cycles, points of interest but just explore and enjoy.
Many activities, mountain and seashore walking, trekking, biking, golf, ...etc, etc!:)
