I stayed at The Mill with my partner for 2 nights over a weekend and absolutely loved it. Incredible place, impecible detail. Morag was so welcoming and generous with her time and accommodating when we had a mix up with the booking. This was a perfect ending to our 2 years living and exploring Scotland. We'd both highly recommend The...

We spent two nights at the Mill and truly enjoyed our time there. The Mill is out in the country so it was quiet and peaceful yet just a quick trip to town and the various sites. We felt lucky to have stayed at this inn, the breakfasts were good and the company around the table made our time there...

Lovely stay with Morag at the Mill. Marvelous cooked-to-order breakfasts, great hospitality and plenty of privacy as we explored 5,000-yr-old neolithic sites, took distillery tours, climbed gorgeous cliffs with amazing views, and had luscious tea-breaks with home-made "bakes" in various Orkney tea-shops and cafes.

Do it! Stay here. Morag has turned this once-fully-operational mill into an experience, not just a stay. It is an older building, so the doorways are low, the windows are tiny, and there are antiques everywhere. The breakfast table is one big table, where you all sit together and become friends. Morag and her helper, Maggie, are fabulous and friendly....

Incredible hospitality from Morag, for the 10 of us spread across the Mill and cottage 2mins down the road. The complimentary breakfast had everything you could ask for plus more- and set up in a great way to meet other guests too! The rooms are very comfortable and homely, and bathrooms were great too. Location is perfect, especially if you...

The Mill was a consummate experience. The rooms were hands down, the most artful and beautiful of all the rooms we stayed at in Scotland. The grounds were exactly the sort of grounds that the curious love to explore. The breakfasts left nothing to be desired before heading out for a day's adventure. Morag provided us with maps, and destinations...

Morag was fantastic and very patient as we tried to book via Skype on a dodgy wifi connection. She was very clear in her directions to find this idyllic, quaint little mill. The whole place oozed character and it was immaculately clean and comfortable. This was one of the very few places on Orkney we found that comfortably housed a...

My mother and I recently stayed at the Mill for two nights, which was really a treat, and a fantastic location. The Mill itself feels like a tourist stop, and it is idyllic in its location, where you look across and see the hills of Hoy. It is so close to Stenness and to the sights on West Mainland, it...

We were blown away by the friendly and homely service given by Moira and her family during our week stay. Moira could not be helpful enough which was in keeping with the other locals on the island. Her breakfasts were very filling and not lacking in choice. The rooms were very comfortable and quirky, situated around this old granary mill....

My wife and spent four days at 'The Mill' in April and we couldn't have chosen a better place from which to see the delights of the Orkneys. Morag is a wonderful host and a mine of information about the islands, their history, current developments and interesting things to do and see. Accommodation first class, food first class. WiFi was...
