How to get here

The Kristin Linklater Voice Centre is set on a remote hillside on the main island of Orkney. It may seem a world away but Orkney is actually very accessible. 

Our island group is only 10 miles off the coast of mainland Scotland and is connected by ferry services and regular flights. Train services, such as those offered by Trainline, and bus services from Edinburgh and Inverness to Scrabster (Thurso) and Gills Bay connect with the ferries. 


If you choose to drive to the port of Scrabster (by Thurso) or Gills Bay (near John o' Groats) you will enjoy a spectacular scenic drive - so leave time for sight-seeing!
