  • We expected only an empty Tower. David, our very ambitious guide, led us into the Interior of the tower. It is equipped with lounge, weapons and ammunition Chamber, "Air conditioning", rain water storage and fire. Definitely worth a visit. From the top, overlooking the entire island and the Scapa Flow. We were in the rain there and were allowed the next day free again upward - only for the views.

  • Excellent tour guide Mike Webster stands next to my daughter Rachel. Mike knew more Martello Tower history than you could imagine. All of it very interesting.
