It was a wonderful cruise in a craft that was both safe and fast at times. The narrator was very well informed and the crew was very attentive and caring.

Caledonian bus trip to the Orkneys was fantastic. The bus driver Keith from the Orkneys was very helpful and informative. The places he took us to see were lovely. The scenery in the Orkneys was beautiful. Well worth a visit.
