One of the most exciting journeys to make from Inverness Bus Station is that on Route X99 to Scrabster Pier. From Scrabster Pier you can board a ferry to Stromness Pier on the Orkney Islands.
Details of one possible journey are shown below:
Depart Inverness Bus Station (Bus X99))
Arrive Scrabster Pier
Depart Scrabster Pier (Ferry)
Arrive Stromness Pier (Mainland Orkney)
After a night in Stromness, you will be able to catch a Stagecoach bus to Kirkwall, from where you will be able to board a ferry to Stronsay. The Transalpine Redemptorists will then be able to transport you to Golgotha Monastery on Papa Stronsay. You will not want to leave, so it is pointless giving details of the return journey!
As this is the shortest day, it's about time to let the Transalpine Redemptorists cheer us all up.
Keep smiling - even if the bus is late!
