Why come to stay at our B and B on Orkney?
Orkney is a stunning place to visit. Located ten miles off the northern coastline of Scotland, the Orkney Islands are known for beautiful agricultural land and a special, raw beauty that only an island can showcase. People often visit our B and B on Orkney for the quiet and peace that is found across the islands. We have a population density of about 20 people per square kilometre; when you think about that, remember that it is an average, so once you account for the small areas of settlement on the islands, there are large areas of wild open space where no one lives. This is a type of peace and calm that is hard to find on the mainland of the United Kingdom.

We specialise in good food, and we often serve beef, fish and shellfish – after all, which such amazing local food available, it would be foolish to miss the chance to enjoy local Orkney fare.
