Sea Watch Foundation have been running annual orca watches around the north of Scotland since 2011. This year, they are partnering up with RSPB Scotland to look for these magnificent mammals off the coast of Marwick Head on Orkney Mainland.

Come along and lend your eyes to the evening. As well as raising awareness of the plight of the orca, these surveys provide essential data for future conservation projects. 

Meet at the Kitchener Memorial car park at 6pm, or join us at the site afterwards. The walk to the watch point is approximately 1km along the coast, so make sure to bring warm clothes and sturdy footwear.
