Pentland Ferries

Ferry in Orkney

These leave from Gills Bay, 3 miles west of John O’Groats, and head to St Margaret’s Hope on South Ronaldsay three to four times daily. The crossing takes a little over an hour. At the time of research, the road-equivalent tariff (RET) scheme was due to be rolled out on Orkney services, so prices should drop.
