We are a 10 vet, independent mixed practice 60% farm, 40% small. We have three branches on mainland Orkney and also cover the smaller Islands. Our herds are predominantly beef suckler with some dairy and sheep. We are a pro-active and well-equipped practice.

Located just off the northern tip of Scotland we have easy access to the Scottish mainland, beautiful sandy beaches, stunning scenery, visiting Orcas, wildlife, a great music scene with festivals throughout the year, art, culture and world famous archaeology. No wonder Orkney is regularly voted one of the best places to live in the UK!

With one of our vets planning his retirement, we have an opportunity for a new vet to join our friendly and experienced team. A genuinely mixed position with farm bias or farm position is on offer. New graduates receive excellent support and a place on the XLVets new graduate programme.
