Loraine Littlejohn

Languages:

I am an Orcadian born and bred and love my islands. I want to share Orkney's mysteries with  you in my role as a fully qualified and insured Guide, accredited to the Scottish Tourist Guides Association.
I lived and worked away from these islands for some years, and it was wonderful to return to the wide skies and mighty seas of Orkney - so come with me to savour some of Orkney's wonders.
As well as guiding large parties organised through the cruise ship industry, I am very happy to guide small groups as a walking or step-on guide. (I do not provide transport myself.) I also undertake the annual assessment at Highland Park Distillery in order to be able to guide there too.
