#1 of 4 B&Bs / Inns in Harray
Teresa welcomes you to the HammerSmith. We cater extensively for Gluten free, vegetarian and vegan diets. We are situated in the heart of the west Mainland near to the lochs of Harray and Stenness, close to the World Heritage neolithic sites of Skara Brae, Ring of Brodgar, Standing Stones of Stenness and the Ness of Brodgar. We are on the main road from Birsay to Finstown conveniently close to both Kirkwall (10 miles) and Stromness (9 miles). With the Merkister Hotel only 2 miles and the Smithfield Arms 4 miles away you do not have to go far for a relaxing drink or a meal. Fishermen can take advantage of the hire boats available at the Merkister Hotel which is situated on the shore of Loch Harray. Car hire is highly recommended, as travel around the island can be limited by bus. Please also book cars well in advance. We also have our own website from where you can book at the best rates. The sunsets and sun rises in Orkney are amazing, we have copious amounts of wonderful wildlife, bird watching RSPB areas nearby, Puffins visit yearly,seals all around us, Orcas, otters etc.

We stayed for three nights in July. Very conveniently located, close to all the sights in the Mainland. The room was very comfortable and Theresa is a wonderful host. She cooked for us every day for breakfast (superb kipper, crumpets..), gave us very good advice in advance for restaurants (so as to allow us to book, a nightmare in covid time) and we could have nice chats with her about our excursions. She gave us extra heating the first day, as the heating oil provider was not there in time, so we felt really cozy. If you stay there, don't forget visiting the pottery (the Harray Potter, Andrew, is just on the other side of the road), you'll surely find something you'll love.

We enjoyed our stay at Hammersmith. The breakfast was perfect in every way. This was a great location to visit Skara Brae and other historic sites. Our room was comfortable and clean. The water was always hot. Thank you.

My two daughters and I recently stayed at Hammersmith for two nights and simply couldn't fault it. The scenic location of Hammersmith makes it the perfect base from which to explore Orkney and the place itself is very welcoming, warm, clean, nicely laid out and decorated. The owner, Teresa, is a great host, very knowledgeable about the area and makes a fabulous breakfast too!

Teresa really looked after us here. Even though we were visiting in Winter she still provided the best breakfast on the Island with top quality homemade jams. Bed was comfy, room was warm and shower was great. All round fantastic experience and would recommend to everyone.
