While some other smaller islands are shown, these are mostly uninhabited.
The Orkney Islands are well knows for their archaeological interest, with finds and ruins from the Neolithic to 18th Century. Scapa Flow, the waters south of Orkney Mainland, have been used as a shelter for ships since the Vikings, although it was closed as a Royal Navy base shortly after the end of World War 2.
