Do this as part of a tour with a guide and hear the stories of war time and how important this sea was.
We had the delight in seeing a lot of Scapa Flow when we were on a private tour with Orkney Uncovered. We feel that you can great a great view from the top of a hill called Scorradale.

A beautiful bay. We saw it from just outside Scapa, on an early July morning. Windy and gusts of rain, but we still had a very nice - if somewhat brief - picnic/breakfast by the beach. Made for a perfect start to the day.
