    Good Sailing
    • In our trip to Scotland was Orkney Islands a special experience. We only did the main Island with two nights camping in the wild with the camper-van. The trip with the Ferry was very good in all aspects. We will remember it. Best regards, Jan and Malika.

    Good crossing, no problems
    • The ferry was just as expected. Kept good timing and going on and off well organised. Not many onboard facilities but with such quick crossing did not expect any.
