Introducing Hoy

Orkney’s second-largest island, Hoy (meaning ‘High Island’), got the lion’s share of the archipelago’s scenic beauty. Shallow turquoise bays lace the east coast and massive seacliffs guard the west, while peat and moorland cover Orkney’s highest hills. Much of the north is a reserve for breeding seabirds. Book ahead for the car-ferry to Hoy.
