Kirkwall Marina is the perfect base for exploring Orkney's islands by boat. It provides safe, secure pontoon berthing and good facilities including red diesel and wi-fi. There are always locals on hand to give a warm Orcadian welcome and to offer advice on the best sailing routes or where to find secluded anchorages to escape to.
Walk through the historic streets of Kirkwall, or access buses, taxis or hire cars to travel further around the Mainland. There are many local restaurants and eateries close by and shops where you can stock up on fresh local produce for the next stage of your journey.
The Orkney Sailing Club is alongside the marina in the ‘Girnel’ building and they offer a bar during the summer months. All visitors to Kirkwall Marina become temporary members of the club.
Whether you are spending time sailing around our Islands, or stopping off on your way further north, we look forward to welcoming you to Kirkwall Marina.
