3000 – This is Kirkwa’!


In August 1557, 3000 Orcadians fought off the English Navy, who had landed in Kirkwall with the goal of seizing the Bishop’s Palace. This was part of a bid to seize access to Scottish fishing grounds. The fleet of 13 ships was commanded by Vice Admiral Sir John Clere. Unfortunately for him, Kirkwall Castle (long since torn down) was one of the strongest in Scotland, and the weather was as hostile as the locals. Sir John Clere drowned when his boat capsized amid a chaotic rout.
