#2 of 4 Speciality lodging in Orphir
Scapa Flow Lodges are three newly constructed luxury two bedroom lodges built looking down over the magnificent views of Scapa Flow.Considerable thought and planning has gone into the design and build quality of the lodges, providing you with an environment which has all the comfort you could wish for. The accommodation provides every modern appliance necessary to make your stay a relaxing and memorable experience. The lodges are situated in the Parish of Orphir, sitting centrally between Orkney's two main towns, Kirkwall and Stromness; it only takes a 10 minute drive to each.

We stayed for a week in October. The location is perfect equidistant between Stromness and Kirkwall with wonderful ever changing views over Scapa Flow. The property is well designed and equipped, very comfortable and, important in October when it can be cold, supplied with very efficient underfloor heating. Margaret is a delightful host. Wifi included.

Lovely cosy cottage for a family. We stayed in Fara.Bit of space outside for the children to play in. Lovely host Margaret who made us feel most welcome. Spent a few happy evenings sipping Kirkuvagr gin and watching the light changing over Scapa Flow!

We stayed in Cava, which had outstanding view across Scapa Sound. The rooms were spacious rooms with effective underfloor heating. The kitchen was well equipped for food preparation Welcome pack of local produce. We liked the position – out of town away from crowds, particularly when the large cruise boats arrive. But very well placed to explore a range of places Comfortable beds, with very good quality linen Modern, good layout parking next to cottage
