Transport Links


Sanday is served by a daily Ferry and Air service linking the island to the Orkney Mainland.

Details can be found on the following websites:

Once on Sanday there is a local bus service which meets every ferry sailing during the summer, and runs an on-demand service to the ferry sailings in the winter (Tel: 07513 084 777 to book).


A round-island bus service operates every Tuesday, in addition to the usual service, allowing passengers to be picked up from their door and taken to the shops, post office, cafe, etc. This service will also provide transport to allow a limited number of people the opportunity to arrange appointments at the Sanday Surgery.  

There is the option for passengers to embark and disembark at various points around the island, therefore offering a very flexible service to visit friends and relatives etc.

Fares are very competitive, and national concession cards can be used.

To book, please call 07513 084 777.
