During the winter months you can see thousands of wintering wildfowl including Longtail ducks, Goldeneye ducks, Tufted ducks and Widgeon in Kirkwall Bay and the shores of the islands.  If you're lucky you might even spot some dolphins or whales!  Fish for mackerel, cod and ling amongst others on our chartered fishing trips (fishing equipment can be provided).
