In this week’s The Orcadian

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

Pick up a copy today to collect your second token to be in with a chance of winning an exclusive prize bundle worth over £2,100 from our friends at Highland Park.

All you need to do is collect the token in the December 24 and 31 editions, fill out the form and post it back to us before Monday, January 11.

The lucky winner will receive a bespoke tour for you and three guests (from two households), including a dram of the distillery’s newly-released 40-year-old whisky; a rare bottle of a limited-edition 18-year-old whisky, and a branded winter jacket.

If you missed last week’s token, back copies of The Orcadian can be purchased by contacting our Hatston office.

Onto this week’s newspaper now, and the front page carries the thoughts of two of our leading figures, Orkney Islands Council convener James Stockan and NHS Orkney interim chief executive Michael Dickson.

Both reflect on a year like no other, and hope for a more positive 2021.
