Hi Many thanks for this one, We are trying to arrange a brief trip to the archaeological sites. A guide with large bus is too expensive for 2 people so were wondering if a taxi firm would do the travelling for us and we guide ourselves.

I'll follow this up today.

Orkney taxis or Craigies taxis - both in Kirkwall. There's also Drive Orkney or Tullocks for rental.

I think you'll find a taxi pricey too btw.

Hiring a car in Orkney is almost impossible in July and August unless made months in advance.This I have learned to my cost and it has marred my experience as public transport is limited as far as tourist sites are concerned and the organised tours are expensive.Some only take groups of eight.
