Starting on Monday 26th of April people from mainland Scotland will be able to travel to Orkney.
People who wish to travel to Orkney, as Scotland eases its Covid restrictions, are being asked to take 2 tests before travelling.
Reaction to Orkney falling into line with the rest of mainland Scotland and remaining at Level 3 has been mixed in the islands.
” as a result of staying in level 3 for a bit longer, it will be possible for islanders and visitors to travel to and from the islands and I know that will make a difference to individuals and businesses on the islands.”
