A Pentland Ferry at St Margaret's Hope pier
The Pentland Ferries ply their route between Gills Bay on the north coast of mainland Scotland and this pier on the western side of St Margaret's Hope Bay.
These sturdy catamaran hulled ferries take about an hour to cross the notorious Pentland Firth which separates the Orcadian archipelago from the mainland.
