Being from England I know that the weather is unpredictable wherever you are, but my husband and I might travel up to the Orkneys in October. Not bothered about the warm weather but are there chances of some sunny days even at that time of the year. I am aware that it can be very windy. Also, will tourist sights still be open as I presume this is the end of the main tourist season. If we don't come then, we may come in May/June.
