Win a holiday to Papa Westray, Orkney Islands

We have a holiday from 7 to 11 April 2016 for one lucky winner and a guest at Papa Westray, Orkney Islands, to give away, worth £990, courtesy of Papay Wildlife Club holidays. 

Orkney Islands

This competition is sponsored by Papay Wildlife Club holidays.

All Papay Wildlife Club guests will find themselves at the heart of the community for their stay, for a wonderful wildlife experience amidst amazing landscape and heritage.

All groups are small, with a maximum group size of seven. 

The theme of this holiday on 7 to 11 April is Awakening From Winter

This time of year is the best for seeing great northern divers, tysties and long-tailed ducks.  

The first great skuas will be prospecting their breeding territories and sandwich terns will be arriving back at their colony. 

Eiders, rock pipits and common and grey seals can be seen on the island year-round.


Your leaders will be Papay residents, Julian Branscombe and Jonathan Ford. Julian has immersed himself in all aspects of Orkney's wildlife since 2009, and has worked in nature conservation for 25 years. Jonathan – Papay Ranger, naturalist, artist and antiquarian - will show you around the island’s fascinating historic sites, from Knap of Howar (this Neolithic building is Europe’s oldest standing house) to St Boniface Kirk and an exceptional 19th century farmstead.
