Wi-fi access

I'll be in Kirkwall for a few days staying with a relative who doesn't have wi-fi, but I will need to check things daily. Where might I get access in Kirkwall - hotels, bars,libraries?

Cheers!

The library has WiFi (not sure if it's free though), as do most hotels/bars.

Hi Lizzie

If you fancy a drive up to Birsay - around 25 mins from Kirkwall - then the excellent Birsay Bay Tearoom has free access to a BT wifi hub which is fast. Great coffee and cakes whilst you check your email! Note that it's shut on a Monday and Tuesday though.

I was in Kirkwall a week ago, and the library does offer free wifi - there is a password on the counter.

Thanks a lot, everyone for your replies

I tried to log on in a Kirkwall hotel without success, but then I went to the library - it was quite exceptional - the staff were very helpful and you have the choice of your own, or their own pcs and can even print documents - ideal if you need a boarding pass or the likes.

Cheers!

I recall the Albert Hotel and their Bothy Bar had great wifi. Orkney's library just won the much coveted library of the year award, and well deserved!
