About Us

“I was so impressed by the pool, the facilities, the helpfulness of the staff and the building itself! It is one of the nicest pools I’ve ever been in – well done Orkney!” 

The Pickaquoy Centre Trust was set up in 1999 to manage The Pickaquoy Centre on behalf of Orkney Islands Council (OIC). We are a non-profit organisation with charitable trust status and served by a Board of Trustees who are responsible for the services we provide. The Board consists of representatives from the arts, tourism and sports community along with members from the local community and OIC councillors.
