John O'Groats Ferries

Ferry in Orkney

Passenger-only service from John O’Groats to Burwick, on the southern tip of South Ronaldsay, with connecting buses to Kirkwall. A 40-minute crossing, with two to three departures daily. Also has a connecting bus service from Inverness. At the time of research, the road-equivalent tariff (RET) scheme was due to be rolled out on Orkney services, so prices should drop.
