We fly from Glasgow to Kirkwall on Loganair. There are regional flights from airports in the U.K. to connect with the onward flight to Kirkwall.
Although there is no passport control between Orkney and the rest of the United Kingdom, please do not forget your passport to satisfactorily establish your identity and nationality when boarding your flight. Nationals of EU countries may use their national identity cards instead of passports.
Nationals of countries other than Britain or other EU member states travelling to the UK should check with the nearest British Embassy or Consulate in their country of residence as to whether they require a visa. If a visa is required, it must be obtained prior to travel.
Some people prefer to make their own travel arrangements and to get to Stromness on the ferry from Scrabster. This is a scenic boat crossing past Hoy. Scrabster is about 2 miles from Thurso which can be reached by train from Inverness.
