Late Bookings for Orkney

We are pleased with the number of registrations for EIMR 2018 and the tourism industry is thriving in Orkney. While that is mostly good news, it may present a few challenges if you are booking accommodation and transport now. We will do what we can to help and contact us (eimr2018@hw.ac.uk) with your news (successes or failures in finding space).

We have heard that Kirkwall hotels are fairly full. Do try your favourite late booking sites and consider alternative accommodation (e.g. B&Bs, hostels, AirBnB). Note that the frequency of bus services is fairly variable on Orkney. The most frequent service is along a route, St Margarets Hope – Kirkwall – Stromness and return, passing by the Pickaquoy Centre (our main venue). If you find somewhere in Stromness or along the road from Stromness to Kirkwall, please let us know. Since a few of us live in Stromness or in that direction, we may be able to help you get around.

Do stay in touch and be confident that we will not leave you homeless or stranded!
