The Orkney and Shetland Islands lie at the northernmost point of the British Isles. Originally part of the kingdom of Norway and Denmark, they became part of Scotland as the dowry for the marriage of Princess Margaret, the daughter of King Christian of Norway and Denmark, to James III of Scotland.

The islands are located in the North Atlantic, as close to Norway as to Aberdeen. The Orkney Islands are located six miles north of the Scottish mainland. There are about 70 islands within the Orkney archipelago, 17 of which are inhabited. Shetland consists of a group of 100 islands with approximately 900 miles of coastline and a population of around 23,000.

In the Orkneys, agriculture is the most important sector of the economy. The significant wind and marine energy resources are of growing importance; the amount of electricity that Orkney generates annually from renewable energy sources exceeds its demand. The main revenue producers in Shetland are agriculture, aquaculture, fishing, renewable energy, the petroleum industry, the creative industries and tourism.

The islands are home to Skara Brae, Europe's most complete Neolithic village, and also to the world's shortest scheduled airline flight.
