I'm visiting Orkney in June and wondered what ferry to catch. What are the advantages of both? I've heard that you have to reverse onto the Pentland Ferry. What about the return journey - do you just "drive on" then?
I'm not fussed where I start my trip as I'll be in a campervan and hope to travel around the Islands as much as possible.
Would it be worthwhile getting the Northlink Ferry to Orkney and returning on Pentland? Is it advisable to book in advance at this time of year?
Many thanks in advance
