Kirkwall Marina

Kirkwall Marina is open to visitors. Please book your berth in advance. 

Kirkwall marina is an all year facility located within the harbour, just yards from the visitor attractions of this ancient port. Our Marina Staff will welcome you and give you information on local attractions and facilities.

There are many local shops, hotels and restaurants close by where you will find warm Orcadian hospitality and fresh local produce. Highland Park and Scapa Distilleries, the most northerly whisky distilleries in Britain, are also within walking distance.

What to do when you get to Kirkwall Marina.

Orkney Sailing Club, located across the harbour from the Marina, welcomes all visitors to the port of Kirkwall whether in a visiting yacht or just a tourist in the Islands. 

Please use the menu bar on the left to find out more information and plan your visit. Click 'Ask a local' to ask any questions you may have about sailing around Orkney. A local sailor with knowledge of Orkney waters will contact you as soon as possible.
