OverviewHide
Follow in the footsteps of ancient Vikings along a historic trail through Kirkwall that was once trodden by these legendary souls. An expert historian will lead this expedition along the famed Viking Capital Trail. Visit the spectacular St. Magnus Cathedral, set in the very heart of Kirkwall. Built in 1137 by the legendary Viking, Earl Rognvald, it’s doors remain open to this day and welcome all who wish to come inside. Continue to the nearby Earl’s Palace, a stunning example of French Renaissance design that hides a terrible epoch in Orkney history when it was ruled by the unscrupulous Stewart Earls. Directly across the way, find the Bishop’s Palace, dating back to the mid-12th century. Journey through the ages on a walk that winds through the epic history of Kirkwall.
