Scapa Flow

Scapa Flow

The site of fierce battles in both World Wars and, after HMS Royal Oak was sunk in one particular battle in 1939 killing 833 men, the famous Churchill Barriers were formed. Despite this heart breaking past, the barriers are now vital to Orkney Cheddar; a road was formed on top of them connecting the farms to the capital Kirkwall - ensuring the milk gets there as fast and fresh as possible.
