We didn’t think we’d have time to stay overnight in the Orkneys so decided to take this one day ferry and bus trip instead. We booked this tour online two days beforehand. We stayed at the Seaview Hotel near John O’Groats so simply walked to...More
It is a fantastic place to visit - the history of the islands alone is fascinating. Our bus driver, Stuart an Orkney local was fun, smart and very entertaining. The towns are charming, the country side is beautiful. This tour was one of the highlights...More
