  • "Great Trip but Online booking not easy"

    Waiting for confirmation of bookings without any opportunity to give alternative times/dates made booking our trip most difficult. However, the Pentland Ferry service was excellent and a seemless trip was experienced both to and from St Margaret's Hope on the Orkney Islands.
