TRAVEL AROUND ORKNEY
Exploring the Orkney mainland and outer islands is easy. Cars and bicycles are available to hire locally and all of Orkney’s inhabited islands can be reached by Orkney Ferries, many of which leave from Kirkwall harbour.
Ferries to the South Isles (Graemsay, Flotta, Hoy) depart from Houton or Stromness.
Ferries to Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre depart from Tingwall in the West Mainland.
You are advised to book vehicles in advance as sailings (especially in summer and at weekends) can be busy.
