Island Tours of Hoy
A warm welcome awaits you on the Island of Hoy, the second largest island in the Orkney archipelago with a population of approximately only 400 residents. Hoy or Haey, the Old Norse word for high, is unique, and very different from the Orkney Mainland and other isles. The vertical cliffs are the highest in the British Isles, there are vast swathes of wilderness, an abundance of wildlife, with a rich history stretching from the Neolithic era to recent times.
Island Tours of Hoy provide a scheduled tour service every Thursday throughout the year; available on other days are individually designed driven or walking tours which could include walks to the iconic Old Man of Hoy, Wilderness Walks, Nature tours or Wartime Themed Tours along the shores of Scapa Flow and the Pentland Firth. All tours begin and end at the ferry terminal.
