Although Burray is only a small island, there are plenty of things to do and places to see.


Orkan Adventures


Whatever you want, here it is.

A wide variety of activities with something to suit everybody. Everything from paintballing with a group of friends, to exciting boat trips and we even have a marina where you can moor your boat in the sheltered waters of Weddel Sound.

Based around a second world war gun emplacement which guarded one of the entrances to Scapa Flow.

Orkan Adventures has the perfect site from which they operate paintball, live laser combat and clay pigeon shooting.

For those wanting adrenalin pumping activity, the paintball and live laser will give them all the excitment that they need.

Clay pigeon shooting is also available for those wishing for a slightly less hectic pastime although it's not recommend eating anything that you shoot as they might be a bit on the crunchy side!


If you would prefer a more relaxed few hours, then you can sit back and take a boat trip on the "Shiela C" around historic Scapa Flow, the wartime base of the British Fleet with a knowledgeable skipper as your guide.

Unfortunately, total relaxation can not be guaranteed as during the trip you may see Dolphins, Porpoise and Basking Shark. If you are lucky, Whales can also be seen from the boat.


Seen from the "Shiela C" - Humpback Whale, Killer Whale and Minke Whale
