    Wonderful hosts and warm welcome. Shona and Billy could not have been more accommodating and helpful.Ease of getting out and about to all the amazing sights of Orkney. On a bus route and near to ferry hopping terminals.

    perfect location overlooking loch of Kirbister…watching a pair of curlews feeding in the field just below the house was amazing and even the swallows buzzing around were friendly … bed was very comfortable… as were the sofa’s… perfectly equipped...

    Shona met us at midnight (after getting off the ferry) and she showed us around thoroughly despite the time. Great service, and a gift of lovely eggs too.
