Orkney Pentalina ferry update on BBC and Pentland Ferry site
"Ferry services to and from Orkney face two more weeks of disruption after MV Pentalina ran aground last month. Pentland Ferries services between St Margaret's Hope and Gills Bay on the mainland are cancelled until 21 May."

Edit to include Pentland Ferry site info:

We are grateful for the many expressions of concern and support following the grounding of MV Pentalina last Saturday (29 April). On the back of these, we would like to confirm that MCA and MAIB investigations are still ongoing. **We regret that we are now cancelling all passenger bookings on the St Margaret’s Hope to Gills Bay route up to and including Sunday 21 May.** All booked passengers are being contacted directly. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience. We are doing all we can to minimise the disruption and will share any further updates as and when we can."
