Hello, and welcome to Undiscovered Scotland, the ultimate online guide to Scotland. The site is a combination of visitor guide, accommodation listing and business directory, and aims to show you what the country is really like.
Tingwall is a tiny settlement on the north east coast of Orkney's West Mainland which looks across the Gairsay Sound to the islands of Gairsay, Wyre and Rousay and serves as the Mainland terminal for the ferry to these islands. For anyone who enjoys fishing harbours, a visit to Tingwall is fascinating. Amongst the specialities on view are the incredibly fresh crabs which can be found, still snapping, in the blue tubs on the harbourside. (more...)
