ST.MAGNUS CATHEDRAL-KIRKWALL
one of Orkney's most magnificent landmarks - towering above the Kirkwall landscape with its distinctive red sandstone hues.
Work began on construction of the 'finest church the North had ever seen' in 1137, and it now belongs to the 'people of Kirkwall'.
italian chapel 1.jpg
THE ITALIAN CHAPEL - is know as the “The Miracle of Camp 60”. The Prisoners of Camp 60 that arrived in Orkney in 1942 to help construct the Churchill Barriers, left behind an unusual memorial on the small island of Lamb Holm. Two Nissan huts were converted into this beautiful chapel and inside beautiful paintings were created by Domenico Chiocchetti, one of the prisoners. This is one of the most visited sites in Orkney. ( A 10 min drive from Quoyeden)
