Orkney Islands Ferries - Scotland
Whichever island you choose, getting there is straightforward, thanks to fast, modern roll-on, roll-off ferry services.
Seven islands are also linked by air and include the world’s shortest scheduled air service - two minutes - between Westray and Papa Westray. Visit Hoy for spectacular cliffs and naval history at Lyness. Choose Eday, at the heart of the island grouping, for abundant birdlife; Flotta for wartime relics or North Ronaldsay for a sense of old traditions. Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre have wildlife in plenty. Sanday has spectacular beaches, while Shapinsay and Stronsay are also well worth a visit. For more information on how to get there, go to the Orkney Ferries Website.
