Kirkwall is the largest town on the Isles of Orkney. The main Ferry Routes are from Aberdeen on the east coast mainland and Caithness, John o Groats and Scrabster on the north coast mainland.

Orkney is also an excelent location for fishing and diving. The Scapa Flow naval base is a haven for divers as it is where the German High Seas Fleet was intered at the end of World War One. All these huge ships were scuttled June 21st 1919. Many of those ships were raised for scrap but some remain in Scapa Flow where they can be seen by diving or on a BOAT TRIP with an ROV.

The 3 battleships remaining in Scapa Flow are all Konig class vessels, which fought at the “Battle of Jutland” as part of the 3rd Battle Squadron. Now laying near to the Island of Cava, the SMS Konig, SMS Kronprinz Wilhelm and SMS Markgraf are probably the most accessible battleship dives in the world. All 3 vessels are of a similar size - they are huge ships weighing approx. 26000 tonnes.
