Accommodation Birsay

Stuart had been married to his wife for almost 15 years, and during that time he felt like they had grown closer and closer. They really enjoyed spending time together, doing activities like walking, hiking, exploring new places and learning about their history.
Stuart knew that his wedding anniversary was coming up in just a few weeks. This year they had decided not to get each other gifts because they did not really need anything new, but Stuart still wanted to mark the special occasion in some way. So, he decided that the best thing to do would be to take his wife away for a long weekend so that they could spend some quality time together doing the things that they loved. But the question was - where should they go for the weekend?
