    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 .
