These beautiful islands are full of many wondrous landscapes, seascapes, ancient monuments, brilliant birds, baffling archaeology and many other endlessly interesting examples of mankind’s remarkable endeavours.
Despite being a mere 8 km from the expansive Scottish landmass, Orkney still proudly retains its own distinctively unique culture and that goes for the dialect too. But don’t worry: they will only slip into incomprehensible speech patterns if you really annoy them and actually they are a very happy people’s.
So to prepare you for the enriching experience of a cultural immersion in all things Orkney, here is a tiny smattering of local lingo which came from a customer information sign on Platform One at Kirkwall Central station of Orkney Metro in December of last year.
Enhancing Orkney’s credentials for ecology and pioneering renewable technologies, Orkney Metro is powered purely by hot air.
