Join Will on a 3 day mini break cycling around the Orkney Islands.  Based in Stromness, we will spend three days visiting the sights around the Mainland and the isle of Hoy.  You will need to book your own transport and accommodation.

Today will start with taking the passenger ferry from the pier opposite the Stromness Hotel to Moaness on Hoy.  When on Hoy we will cycle just under 70km exploring the island, taking in;

You can see the route here.

The ferry to Hoy leaves at 10am, arriving 10:30 and will cost around £4.  The return ferry will be from Lyness to Houton, which is a short cycle from Stromness.  Ferries aren't that frequent, though the last one leaves at 16:40 and also costs £4.

Bring your swim kit as we might go for a dip.
