The Orkney Islands - or Orkney - are an archipelago of 70 islands off the north coast of Scotland, where the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea meet. Orkney has been inhabited for more than 5,500 years and you can still see the sites of Neolithic tribes who lived there in the past. These days, about 20,000 people live on 21 islands. There are many festivals throughout the year including the St Magnus Festival to celebrate midsummer. There are also agricultural shows, sporting events and craft fairs. The capital of Orkney is Kirkwall. It is a Viking town where around 7,600 people live today. The town has a lot of original Norse architecture dating back to 1035.
