to the website of the Orkney Defence Interest Network (ODIN), a group set up to highlight the importance of Orkney’s wartime heritage.  The strategic significance of the Orkney Islands, off the north of Scotland, has been recognised for centuries. They are sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and North Sea and have provided a deep, sheltered natural anchorage for naval fleets.

ODIN’s mission is “To promote the identification, categorisation and preservation of Orkney’s defence heritage, to establish a Wartime Trail in collaboration with others and to raise awareness and understanding of the value of this archaeology and social history in all its aspects throughout the Orkney Islands.”

Our  Factsheet is still available - you can download it completely free by clicking here!

We welcome ideas and members so, if our aims are of interest, please come and join us.
