About Us

Andy and Karen took over Westraak in 2017 from Graham and Kathy Maben who had established and run this thriving tour business for the previous 12 years.

Karen was brought up in Westray and returned to what has always been her Home in 2014. Andy has a degree in Archaeology and a keen interest in local history. We were married here in 2016 and set up our family home at the Old Manse in Pierowall which is the base for Westraak.

We love living in Westray and are keen to share our enthusiasm for the island with our guests. This season’s guests ranged from 4 to 87 years old and all found something here to interest them. We aim to provide a relaxing, fun and informative day with a warm Westray welcome for all.
