Enhance your Orkney experience with a qualified Orkney guide
We cannot arrange your travel to Orkney, but there are a number of different ways to get to here:
Arrival by ferry:
Northlink Ferries sail from Scrabster near Thurso to Stromness and also from Aberdeen to Kirkwall. The Kirkwall - Aberdeen sailing makes good connections with rail services & is probably the best route if you are using public transport, but arrives very late at night in Kirkwall and is overnight going south.
Pentland Ferries Ltd sail from Gill's Bay near Thurso to St. Margaret's Hope.
