Drawing of St Ninian's, Deerness by Isobel Gardner Drawing of St Ninian's, Deerness by Isobel GardnerWelcome to The Friends of St Ninian’s website.  We aim to keep you informed not only about our organisation, its work and events, but also to open up the life and times of the Orkney parish of Deerness to local folk and visitors alike, whether in person, or across the world-wide web.

The photographs on this website show you a variety of landscapes and seascapes of Deerness – out to Copinsay, to the North Isles, Auskerry and back across to the rest of Mainland Orkney.  Enjoy these images, and please add more to the photo gallery.
