Mr Thomson isn’t running his minibus service anymore
Spoke this morning with the driver of the service which has taken me to Rackwick Bay on two previous occasions. He confirms that the service still runs and indeed has never stopped.
As far as the IoHDT are aware Mr Thomson is no longer operating a service, however, Mr Clark is. As we understand it, Mr Thomson’s son is planning to start a service as well, we are awaiting confirmation on this and will keep the post updated.
We do try and keep our ‘travel to and on Hoy’ page as up to date as possible, please continue to check this for updates.
How much does a taxi to the trailhead to the Old Man near Rackwick cost?
Unfortunately we do not run a taxi service ourselves, you would need to contact the taxi and tour providers listed on our website, you will find this information under the ‘travel to and on Hoy’ section.
Hi. My wife and I are hoping to get the 09.30 Stromness-Moanness ferry on 03/10/20 and then take the 18.30 ferry back. We’re comfortable/confident of walking the 14 miles to the Old Man of Hoy and back but think we’ll have 2 to 3 hours on our hands before the ferry back (to Stromness). Is there anywhere in or near Moanness (it has to be in walking distance) where we could get a bite to eat – or even an early evening meal?
As far as we are currently aware there are no places open to eat just now due to the Covid-19 situation. Best to pack a picnic and plenty of snacks! We hope you enjoy your visit.
