Dear Jan We are going to be having a lot of our family "home" for the "show weekend" and because of that our B&B will not be open for bookings. Do try Brinkies Guest House - she will possibly have the kind of accommodation you are looking for - Im sure she has a family room. Failing that try The Mill of Eyrland - she has a small flat at the top of her coverted water mill that would be ideal Best wishes- Joy

"Ask for views over to Scapa Flow or Stromness"
"Open windows to enjoy the healthy air"
"The windows in Hoy View provided great views of the harbour and surrounding countryside."
"Loved the Hoy Room with the view and lovely bathroom and rain shower."
"Views on sea with the bigger doubles are ensuite. The smaller double is lovely and it has a bath/shower in its own bathroom ."
