Cruise Arrivals


In this week’s The Orcadian

This week’s edition of The Orcadian will be dispatched to retailers from Thursday afternoon following today’s (Wednesday) cancelled ferry crossings.

We apologise for the delay. The digital edition is available online now for single edition purchases, and for longer-term subscriptions.

On the front page — drugs and intimidating behaviour by youths forces the early closure of Kirkwall’s travel centre on Fridays.

Also on the front, Stromness Hotel staff share their mission to get the community back on side, as its owner claims he is losing up to £15,000 a month during winter.

Included in this week’s newspaper is our Spring Farmer pullout feature.
