Merkister Hotel 3 stars

Hotel in Harray

Located on the shore of Harray Loch and family-run for over 30 years, the Merkister Hotel is a 15-minute drive from the main towns of Kirkwall and Stromness. We absolutely loved this place. We hope to go back again but stay more than a couple of nights. The food was some of the best on the island. The staff was incredibly informative, friendly, and enjoyable to interact with. For the first time during 6 weeks of traveling, I said this was the first time I really felt at peace. Take a cup of coffee, sit outside in the morning with sun on your back looking out over the loch, life couldn't get any better.
