  • Hi, I realise that you have advised no pets, but we have an old dog and are reluctant to leave her at home this year. I wondered if it was possible to make an exception ? We are bringing our grandson to Orkney, he has never been. Thank you, Brian Davidson.
    we are really sorry but as we have animals on a working farm we do not allow pets . A Lot of our customers book because we dont take pets . Thanks Shona

  • Hi Shona, Myself, my husband & 2 little ones are very keen to come & have a holiday at your self catering home in October (2021). However we are wondering what would happen if we go back into lockdown or restrictions put on travel? Would you still charge us for the holiday or would we get a refund?
    If lockdown or restrictions happen we would refund, however this would have to be done through Booking.com this has happened in the past and a full refund was issued . Thanks shona
