In this week’s The Orcadian

This week’s edition of The Orcadian is now in shops and is available online, here.

On our front page this week, shop staff share their hopes for cruise liner custom ahead of the arrival of the Anthem of the Seas on Friday. But it remains unclear as to how many of the 1,111 passengers on board will be setting foot on Orkney soil, and whether they will be permitted a browse through Kirkwall’s high street.

The front page also features a photo of Kirkwall rower Davie Flett and his crew member, who have recently completed a 350-mile voyage from Newcastle to Orkney.

Inside this week’s newspaper, we bring readers a special pullout feature celebrating 25 years of printing and design at Hatston with Print Orkney.
