  1. I see that vehicles are permitted on the ferry from Stromness to the North Hoy Ferry port. So can I assume that autos are allowed on Hoy? Can we bring our car from Stronmess and take a day tour with our own auto? Thanks,

  2. Hi, Donna. The ferry from Stromness is for foot passengers only, although you’re allowed to take a bicycle on board for free. Bicycles can be rented in Stromness and other places on the mainland, but be warned – Hoy is pretty hilly. You can take your car if you go on the ferry that leaves from Houton. So yes, you can take your own car for a day tour. It’s a stunning island – have fun!
