About Island Tours of Hoy
Island Tours of Hoy offer bespoke private tours throughout the year. We also offer scheduled group tours (Maxi & Standard) which take place every Thursday (presently suspended due to COVID 19 as we are reluctant to mix household groups). We also provide guided coach tours and tours for visiting cruise ships. We facilitate visits for journalists, travel writers/bloggers and TV crews.
A warm welcome awaits you here on the Island of Hoy, the second largest island in the Orkney archipelago with a population of approximately only 400 residents.
Hoy is unique, and very different from the Orkney Mainland and other isles, it is often compared to the Scottish Highlands. Much of the isle is designated as 'Wild Land', one of only forty-one sites in Scotland.
The vertical cliffs are the highest in the British Isles, there are vast swathes of wilderness, an abundance of wildlife, with a history stretching from the Neolithic era to modern day.
