St Mary's is the island to stay on, because at 10am and 2pm every day, a small flotilla of open boats set off to each of the other inhabited islands. Buy tickets from the booth at the head of the pier, or from the Tourist Info Office in Hugh Street. They also run trips to the Eastern and Western Isles, to see seals, the lighthouse, puffins etc., and to uninhabited islands like Sampson. There is a blackboard showing the day's trips at the pierhead, and the tourist office.
