Welcome to the brand new Orkney Islander magazine website, where you can find a wealth of information about the magnificent Orkney Islands.
The launch of this website in 2017 marked a significant milestone for our magazine, celebrating 30 editions.
The Islander magazine is a product of The Orcadian Ltd — producers of Orkney’s 163-year established local newspaper — and aims to provide visitors to the islands with a unique perception on Orkney, from the inside out. As such, in our magazine, you will find articles written by locals in the know, on everything from industry to arts, food and drink to archaeology, history, culture and entertainment.
What makes us unique? Our contributors hail from all corners of the islands, and are simply full of local knowledge. Check with us for tips on where to go, what to see, and who to contact. What you will discover on the pages here is just the very beginning . . . we have big plans!
While you are here, take a moment to explore, and make sure you enter our competition to win a family break to Orkney — it’s a great prize, and we’d love you to be in with a chance of winning!
