    I used this service, which runs from Gills Bay (in Caithness, near John O'Groats) to St Margaret's Hope (on South Ronaldsay). Takes an hour exactly. Cost £80 return for 1 person in an Audi A3.

    It was on time on the way over - a calm sunny day, and perfect for the sail. The ship is modern & comfortable, but not big. On/off is quick and efficient

    St Margaret's Hope is about 30 minutes drive fro Stromness.

    One wee warning. Even the slightest tilt of the ship set off my car alarm, and you can't access the car deck during the voyage. Next time I'll try leaving it unlocked...

    The bus service is in frequent but well worth going as Kirkwall is a masterpiece capital; in waiting filled with history while Stromness has an historical well where the Hudson Bay ships filled up before going to Canada.
