The St Magnus Way ends this walking season with a guided walk from The Orkneyinga Saga Centre in Orphir to St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall on Saturday 19th of October.

The day will start with the final inauguration of interpretation boards and waymarker stones at 10.00am at the Orkneyinga Saga Centre.

Our thanks again to Iain Ashman and Frances Pelly for the work that they have put into producing these stunning pieces of work. Andy Fraser and Kathryn Sclater will be doing the inaugurations.

All are welcome to join in on this day. Walkers are advised to have waterproofs and strong walking footwear as some sections are rough and may be boggy and to have enough food and drinks for the walk which is a little over 11 miles long and we expect to take 5-7 hours walking.

The theme for this section of the walk is “Hospitality” and we are thankful to the folk at the St Magnus Centre that will be providing this in the form of hot drinks and a little something to eat at the end of the walk.

Any car driver wishing to leave their car in Kirkwall should leave it in the car park across from Tesco and meet at the gate beside the pedestrian crossing before 9.30am and transport to the start will be organised
