This crofting township is considered one of the most beautiful places in Orkney. Bounded by towering red sandstone cliffs and steep heathery hills, Rackwick Valley rests beside a fine sand and boulder strewn beach. It has a beauty and climate all of its own. The walk to the Old Man of Hoy starts here. Rackwick is a good place for campers with a traditional bothy building open to the use of the public. – VisitScotland
