The tree outside St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall is shining its lights out to cheer on shoppers and passers by.
And all around the town shops have decorated their windows to bring cheer at Christmastime.
Inside too there are lots of temptations to shop local.
Here’s a wee video of some of the lights and sights.
It is certainly more important than ever before to support our local shops and businesses.
