Thank you for looking at our site. With deep regret, we have taken the decision not to continue tours of Papay. This is due to the high costs (insurances etc) incurred at the start of each year, which we are simply unable to recoup over the course of a farly short season. Our heartfelt thanks go to all those who have toured with us and our apologies to those who would have liked to. Hopefully, you'll make it to Papay and have a wonderful time on this beautiful island! And please give us a wave!"

Papa Westray or Papay as it is known, is a small island with a big history. With its beautiful scenery of dramatic cliffs and sandy beaches, rolling farmland, and wetlands, there is something here for everyone.
People were living and working on Papay before the pyramids were built. The oldest house in Northern Europe, at Knap of Howar, is reckoned to predate Skara Brae by some 600 years! There are numerous archaeological sites on the island and we’ll take you to those we can and tell you about those we can’t!
We are Stuart and Mary Thompson and we want to make your tour special – Errival is the highest point on Papay and we’ll endeavour to make your time with us a high point of your visit to Orkney!
Please note that we currently only accept cash or cheque payments and are unable to process credit or debit cards.
We hope you’ll enjoy a look round our site and please don’t hesitate to contact us by phone or e-mail, should you require any further information,
See you soon!
