  • Beautiful sail between Houton, Lyness and Flotta. Lot of history and museum at Lyness well worth a visit.  more »
  • We had a guide who described the wartime history surrounding the Scapa Flow. Really fascinating and amazing. WWII touched so many people in every isolated are of Northern Europe. Just astounding.  more »
  • Magnificent natural site and place of maritime history, Scapa flow is not without move. Permanently marked by the two world wars, the Cove, whose background is punctuated by wrecks, so peaceful to look invites to meditation.
