It was a feisty game, with two yellow cards for each side during the 80 minutes, one each after a second-half fracas that spilled off the pitch.
Try scorers for Orkney were Man of the Match (despite his yellow card) Ally Linklater, Scott Rendall, Don Tualasea and Dean Campbell. Jon Tait had a conversion before having to come off, with William Thomson taking over kicking duties and slotting two conversions and a penalty.
Highland try scorers were Grant Jamieson (2) and Alex MacDonald. Craig Irvine slotted all three conversions and a penalty, with Scott Fraser also kicking a penalty.
