John has arranged The tour of Orkney over 2 days this year, leaving Gills harbour on the Saturday morning at 09:45 and returning on the Sunday at 17:00 hrs. The cost of the boat is 20 return per person + 8 return for the bike (28 total). On top of that you will need to arrange a B&B for the Saturday night. Contact John to see what his plans are.

Alternatively you can leave Gills at 09:45 and return at 17:00 on Saturday night. If you wish to return on the Saturday night check the times with the ferry operator, but it should be 17:00 hrs, the same as Sunday.
Tel 01856 831 226.

Ferry departures:-

Gills Bay





St Margaret's Hope




Please let John know if you intend to go along so he has an idea of who to expect.

Once your on Orkney the full round trip is about 100 miles (over 2 days), but this can be reduced by taking several shorter loops. The scenery is stunning, the company is excellent, and the pace is easy, so don't be put off by the distance.

Have a good time....
