Does any body know an agency or station or a private person in the area between Thurso and John 0`Groats or on the Orkneys of whom I can hire a 50cc or 80cc motorbike (scooter or dirtbike or similar)? I would like to go to Orkney Isles for some 5 days. Please answer soon as I am going at the end of april Thanks a lot for careing.
With cordial greetings from Carinthia / Austria,
Scooter and motorcycle hire is not common in the UK, and I would caution you that hiring either from a private individual would not be legal. I remember researching this for another questioner and discovering that there are very, very few places which hire either scooters or motorbikes.
You can check through this listings site for those few::
I'm afraid I can't find any in Orkney.
