The Covid-19 Orkney travel information I've linked to below will help you to manage the sometimes rapidly-changing transport procedures and schedules, both in getting to Orkney and in getting around within Orkney.
You'll also be armed to keep on top of any coronavirus travel in Orkney updates that may occur.
Be aware that many Orkney businesses and sites will be limited in various ways, and some public toilets cannot be reopened due to the stringent cleaning measures now required. All this may impact the quality of your visit.
Please remember that wearing a mask is required in shops, on public transport and other public indoor spaces, and all ferry travel must be booked by phone well in advance of travel.
In spite of all the weirdness, we hope you enjoy your visit to Orkney if you do come. We know you'll keep the safety and comfort of our island community the focus of everything you do.
