The Queens Baton comes to Orkney

Queen’s Baton Relay

NorthLink Ferries were honoured to be asked to transport the Queen’s Baton to Orkney, but a job as important as this couldn’t be done alone! We asked the various Orkney clubs that we sponsor to come on board MV Hamnavoe to help us take the baton north, on Thursday, 10th July 2014!

Here are some photos of the day – we were delighted that so many Orcadians and visitors got the chance to hold the Queen’s baton on board MV Hamnavoe!
