Running over three nights, the guided walks explore the famous haunted house at night by candlelight, visiting rooms rarely seen by the public and revealing spooky tales of Orkney’s past.

At Dragon History we aim to share with you the best that Orkney has to offer. History is our passion, and we believe history should be dynamic, fun, emotional and involving!
