01856 Area Code - Orkney

The 01856 area code is used for Orkney (Council of Orkney Islands) and the areas directly surrounding Orkney, which includes 18 distinct locations. Most 01856 numbers are used for landlines. However, they can also be purchased by companies or organizations to be used for services that don’t have any connection to the Orkney area.

Previously, the area used 0856 as their area code. This changed in April 1995 during the phONEday event, where it was changed to the 01856 area code to accommodate the growing population and supplement the shrinking supply of phone numbers in Orkney Islands.
