“A ferry business between John O’Groats and the Orkney Islands is up for sale. It runs daily just from May to September and in the winter, you can take it easy, walk along empty beaches, relax by the fireside or jet to warmer climes. It’s based in John O’Groats, in the very north of Scotland. In mid-summer, the sun barely sets and Orcas cruise past the little harbor with remarkable regularity. It’s near to the majestic Stacks of Duncansby where the company also runs daily wildlife cruises.”
