I would like to take the ferry at 09:30 from Gills Bay to St Margarets Hope. There is a bus (line 77) arriving from Wick at 09:11. Are these 19 minutes enough to reach the ferry? I am a foot passenger with no vehicle or luggage. On the return trip from St Margarets Hope to Gills Bay, the ferry arrives in Gills Bay at 18:00. The bus from Gills Bay to Wick departs Gills Bay at 18:15. Is that enough time to catch the bus? Again, I am a foot passenger with no vehicle or luggage.
We need to return to the mainland on a Saturday in Aug, on the 1700 ferry from St. Margaret's Hope, as foot passengers. We can drop off the rental car near the travel center, but it looks as if the only bus to the Ferry terminal gets us there at 14:45. Am I missing something? If not, will taxis be available to the terminal.
Hi Kaysib, The X1 bus departs Kirkwall Travel Centre at 1515 on a Saturday arriving at the ferry terminal at 1545. We would recommend you catch this bus in order to be at the ferry in plenty of time for boarding. Thank you
Can you take dogs on board the ferry? Many thanks
Yes you can take dogs on the ferry. They must either stay in the vehicle on the car deck or they can be taken onto the top sun deck for the duration of the journey.
Vorrei sapere se, durante il mese di Maggio, esiste la possibilità o probabilità che il servizio sia sospeso per le condizioni meteo marine e se si per quanto? Grazie.
It is very unlikely that there will be any cancelled sailings due to weather in May however it is not impossible if there are strong winds.
How rough are the seas
We had a horrible journey going over during a storm, the ship was tipping up & down & rolling sideways. People were staggering all over the place so that added amusement value. Coming back was smooth and sunny, what a contrast.
