About Eday

Eday is at the heart of Orkney's North Isles with plenty of attractions for visitors.


As with much of Orkney, Eday boasts a great collection of archaelogical sites. The two most notable are the Stone of Setter, the tallest single megalith in Orkney, and the Neolithic Chambered Cairn on Vinquoy hill which commands magnificent views over the Orcadian archipelago.


Eday has much to offer birdwatchers, including an array of seabirds. Other birds, such as the Red Throated Diver and the Short-Eared Owl, are relatively common. Guided tours can be arranged with the Eday Ranger.
