    Great experience
    • Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Staff were very friendly and helpful from the check in to our disembarking. Food was very good and accommodation clean and comfortable. Will be back.

    Rough crossing.
    • It was a blowy crossing from Scrabster to Stromness and the boat was moving about a fair bit in the swell. I decided to test out my sea legs and have the early morning breakfast. The staff were superb and even went to the trouble of making me extra tattie scones . The breakfast was extremely good and surprisingly good value. I recommend the Hamnavoe - a super comfortable ferry .
