Go with the flow
Mention the word ‘flow’ to anyone in Orkney, and they’ll think you’re talking about Scapa Flow. The Flow is the spectacular natural harbour at the heart of the Orkney archipelago. To its south lie the sandstone cliff ramparts of Hoy. To its north the beaches and rolling hills of the Orkney mainland. Looking west you can see the twin lighthouses on the tiny island of Graemsay, and the wild Atlantic beyond. Head east and you encounter the long string of islands connected by the Churchill Barriers.
