Orkney is a historical archipelago in the Northern Isles of Scotland and situated off the northern coast of Great Britain. It is also known as the Orkney Islands. Orkney translates to an Old Norse word that means "island of the pigs". Orkney contains a number of islands, and it is approximated to be up to 70. Out of this, twenty islands are inhabited and occupied. The largest of all the occupied islands is an island called Mainland, or sometimes referred to as 'the Mainland'. It is a large island and also ranks as the sixth largest in the whole of Scotland. Almost seventy-five percent of Orkney's total population lives on this island making it a very important location in the archipelago. Mainland, as a result of its rich history, has been subject to various archaeological findings with many sites discovered to hold some of Scottish most important history. One of the most famous sites is the "Heart of Neolithic Orkney" which is a UNESCO World Heritage Centre. It comprises of the large chambered tomb of Maes Howe, the Ring of Brodgar, the Standing Stones of Stenness and other unexcavated ceremonial sites.
Kirkwall is the largest settlement and also serves as the capital of Orkney. Kirkwall was first mentioned in popular history in the Orkneyinga saga in the year of 1046. It was recorded as the place of residence of Rognvald Brusason who was the Eral of Orkney at the times. Rognvald was killed by his uncle Thorfinn the Mighty. Orkney is blessed with an abundant wildlife which is the pride of its people. Grey and common seals are very common in the archipelago. Seabirds such as puffins, tysties, ravens and kittiwakes are also common in the Orkney Islands. The coastline is well known and renowned for the beautiful and colourful flowers such as sea aster, sea squeal and common heather. It is through this abundance of wildlife that the residents of Orkney have developed a taste for beautiful flowers.
