There is now a bus service on the island run by the Island development trust, which runs most of the year. For more details see their web page, the link is on our 'Links Page'.
We believe that you will find a stay on Hoy, just what the doctor ordered: fresh air, peace and quiet, close-knit community life and socializing (if required), plenty of outdoor activities, or the perfect place to wind down.
If you would like to be kept informed of special offers, changes in rates, or island events, please contact us by dropping us a line.
Are you looking for accommodation in Orkney? Have you considered staying on an outer island instead of seeking accommodation in Orkney mainland facilities? You might be surprised at the difference. Most people who visit Orkney don't realise that they can use an island as a base to travel around the archipelago with relative ease, and the island of Hoy is ideal. The Hoy Hotel is perfectly suited as it is a short walk from the roll-on roll-off ferry at Lyness, which is a 30 minute voyage from mainland Orkney, where public transport timetables are geared to make seamless journeys.
