A visit to North Hoy
Our most intense trip in the Orkney Islands was indeed our day on North Hoy. We arrived to Stromness by bus from Kirkwall. In Stromness we took the Gramsey Ferry to North Hoy. This is a non-cargo ferry. If one wish to access Hoy Island by car you need to border from Lyness. North Hoy is a remote place. Most of the island considered Nature reserve. The scenery with Ward Hill is very majestic. I hope we can climb it next time. There is also much for anyone interested in birdlife, archaeology and natural History. An excellent place for hillwalking and coastal walks.
