Discover Orkney


Route T11 open top bus

Our Orkney open top bus is back for 2017 from Monday 5th June until Sunday 27th August!

Route T11 gives visitors the opportunity to visit some of the highlights of the Island.

The hop-on, hop-off open top bus service departs from Kirkwall travelling west along the coast before arriving at Stromness. Route T11 then stops at Skara Brae and the Ring of Brodgar and passes the Standing Stones of Stenness before returning to Kirkwall.

All of our Orkney services run on a ‘hail and ride’ basis out with built-up areas. Simply get into a safe spot on the main  road and make it clear to our driver that you’d like to get on board. If you’re travelling in a group you can even give us advance warning of your group size and where you’ll be boarding. Just contact us on 01856 870 555.
