Scapa Flow Visitor Centre

[Scapa Flow Visitor Centre - main building and pumping station]

When alighting on Hoy from the vehicle ferry to Lyness, one of the first things you'll notice is a large white building backed by an industrial-looking metal cylinder. Not particularly promising from the outside, but these buildings (and a few others) are home to Hoy's best man-made attraction: a superb museum dedicated to Scapa Flow's eventful wartime history. The large site encompasses a trio of impressive buildings full of exhibitions, vehicles and boats of all shapes and sizes; a couple of hours here and you'll never look at this section of Orkney's inshore waters in the same way again.
