I'm looking for CURRENT information of travelling from Edinburgh to Stromness or Kirkwall, Orkney. I'm prepared to fly but thought that the train might be more interesting.
Trains - www.nationalrail.co.uk
Ferry - www.northlinkferries.co.uk/ports/stromness/
You can take the train to Thurso and get a ferry to Stromness from Scrabster on the outskirts of the town. See the links in the post above.
Thanks for that information...I've considered flying but the train sounds much more interesting. I'm going to explore the options right now. Thanks again.
