The Hamnavoe is the ferry which travels between Stromness and Scrabster. When I took this panorama we were passing the Old Man of Hoy which is a sea stack on the west coast of Hoy. There are three companies running ferries between Orkney and mainland Scotland. Northlink run between Stromness and Scrabster as well as having a route between Lerwick, Kirkwall and Aberdeen. Pentland Ferries runs between St. Margaret's Hope and Gills bay. Finally John O' Groats Ferries run a passenger only service between John O' Groats and Burwick.
