  1. Is there Community Bus service between Moaness Pier and Rackwick? Alternatively, is there a route map of Route 2 (Moaness-Longhope), so I can see where and when it stops? Thank you!

  2. Hi Johanna

    The community bus doesn’t run a service to Rackwick. The route to Longhope goes passed the turnoff to Rackwick. The drivers will drop you off wherever you want along the route. Route 2 is only operated on Wednesdays and Sundays.

  3. Hi, I will be coming by ferry to Moaness and want to walk to Rackwick and then the Old Man of Hoy – how long will that take me (I am not a very fast walker) as I will have to walk back as well and don’t know if I could make it to the ferry in time???

  4. The minibus service from Moaness to Reckness should be booked in advance as recommended on this website. Is there a name and a phone number of this minibus service to call it in advance?

  5. There is no public transport to Rackwick from Moaness, you would need to
    contact one of the following private taxi/tour companies.

    Terry Thomson – 01856 791263
    Albert Clark 01856 791315

  6. Has there been any alterations to timetable for tying in with altered boat times on 30th/31st May (Battle of Jutland centenary) and is there a downloadable version if so.

    • An updated timetable for 30th/31st May 2016 can be found on The island of Hoy Development Trust facebook page.

      Any queries please call the Trust Office 01856 701356

    • Hi Amy
      The community bus runs a scheduled service, so won’t be of any use for this. I’ve spoken to Teresa at the surgery and she said to give her a call and they’ll see how they can help, the number’s 701209, Kind Regards Liz

  8. Hello, I was wondering if there’s an updated timetable for April 2018? We are looking to come across with our wee dog and would be looking for transport from Moaness to Rackwick to walk up to see the Old Man of Hoy. Look forward to hearing from you.

    • Hi, the timetable on the website is still correct for April 2018, however the community bus service doesn’t run to Rackwick. There is private hire available from Moaness to Rackwick with Albert Clark on 01856 791315.
