    Orkney First Visit
    • I have left out the on board catering because we did not use it as is no reflection on the facility. We did have some coffee etc at Gill's Day Everything from our arrival to go to Orkney at Gill's Bay and our return 8 days later at St Margaret's Hope could not have been more efficiently handled. All staff with whom we had contact were second to none. Should we return to Orkney this will definitely be the route we will take.
