  • "Plain sailing !!"

    This was a completely trouble free trip with ample facilities aboard with shop, restaurant etc. Travelling with a caravan we had no difficulty boarding and departing ship. We had to leave our dog in the car because of the weather not allowing us to be on the sundeck. Would like to see a small area available for dogs to be with their owners as with Caledonian McBrayne. Otherwise it was plain sailing on the 1.5 hour journey.

  • "Hamnavoe - from Scrabster to Stromness."

    A very smooth operation embarking and disembarking. Ferry on time in both directions. Comfortable and clean boat with plenty of space in the lounges - and lots of facilities. A very enjoyable experience.
