Scotland - Ferry to Orkney Islands

Today we took a ferry to the Orkney Islands

Eef in line.

Thurso from the ferry terminal

The ferry coming to port
Driving onto the ferry

We weren't permitted to stay in the car for this 1.5 hr crossing but they had a nice lounge.

And lots of other seating.  We sat here for a while then retired to seats in a darker corner while we tried to sleep.

Leaving port.... see the lighthouse in the background?

I teased my sister that this home just north of Thurso was her dream home... kind of looked like castle turrets in the back.

Clear view of the lighthouse

An hour into the trip we started seeing some of the islands of the Orkneys.  A rock pinnacle called the Old Man of Hoy is visible when it's not foggy but we didn't see it.

Coming into the small town of Stromness on the mainland of the Orkney Islands.

Pulling up to the dock
