Meet your local guide

Lorna

Lorna was born in Orkney on the Island of Westray and can trace her family living there as far back as possible. She loves sharing the beauty, history and culture of her islands. Lorna usually speaks in Orcadian dialect which comes from an old Norse language called Norn but don't worry, she will be chanting on tour. Chanting is the Orcadian word for speaking your best English.

Lorna has been guiding since Apr 2013

An enjoyable opportunity to see standing stones without being surrounded by tourists. Lorna was an excellent guide to the history and geography of this site. The positioning of standing stones by ancient man amazes me.

I really enjoyed Lorna's first tour. It was very relaxed, informative and we had the previlege to experience the Ring of Brodgar without any other people. I'm eagerly waiting to go exploring with Lorna again!

With the technical problems you truly did a remarkable tour and provided nice post cards. I learned more about the historical area from you and will research more from your inspiration.

A lovely relaxing walk in a place of beauty and tranquillity. Lorna gave us lots of information about this ancient site, and responded well to all the queries from interested Virtual Trippers. Well done, and thank you. Another place for my bucket list!
