Orkney is an island group in the north-western part of the Scottish mainland. It is separated from the rest of Scotland by the North Sea and was previously known as "The Orkneys" until this name was found to be misleading because it suggests that there are more than two islands. The correct term for these two islands and their surrounding islands is "Orkney Isles".
The Orkney Islands are part of the country of Scotland, but they use the sterling currency instead of the Scottish pound. They share a border with Norway to the west and are connected to the main land by a bridge across the gap between them called "Stromness Jetty".
The Orkney Islands were originally part of Caithness, along with the other northern islands of Scotland. But in 1801 they were given their own commissioner, whose role was to advise local government bodies on matters related to agriculture, roads, bridges, and other issues relevant to the islands. This position still exists today and is called the "Commissioner for the Orkney Islands".
