[Talk-scotland] Shetland-Orkney ferry and NCN 1

Hello Scotland,

Someone has pointed out that OSM currently has NCN 1 going by ferry to 


whereas the ferries actually go to Lerwick.

P2 tells me that the way in question was created by a German mapper last 
summer. I can't see any information anywhere about a Kirkwall-Grutness 
ferry, but then I've never been north of John O'Groats!

Could someone with local knowledge correct/amend as applicable? Better 
to have this section of NCN 1 missing than send people on a non-existent 
ferry, I think.
