    Have fished on Orkney a few times over the years, great place even if it's just for the scenery.
    I've a feeling the water around Finstown is fairly shallow, stayed there once myself.
    If you don't mind traveling to Stromness....... can't be that far, certainly less than 10 miles, I'd say the fishing is probably better around there.
    Have had some cracking charter trips out of Stromness, caught first Portbeagle shark from there, and good sized Halibut.
    Maybe a bit serious if you're just looking for some fun fishing.
    Plenty good marks for spinning around there though.
    Hope your successful.
    Tight lines !!

    Other than a charter, the Churchill Barriers or Hoxa Head will be the best venues from the shore. Possibility of sea trout around the brig at Finstown.

    The beach at Aikerness is OK for flounder, on the right towards the Broch of Gurness.....
