We couldn't have picked a better place to stay on our trip to Orkney. Julie and Mike run a beautiful B&B where everything they do is geared towards their guests to make you feel welcome and comfortable. There's an air of relaxed friendliness as soon as you arrive. As first-timers to the islands, we were bowled over by Julie's knowledge about places to see and her kindness in ringing around for information and to book things on our behalf. Each morning they made wonderfully tasty breakfasts to order; they also made us a delicious picnic lunch for a boat trip which was so plentiful we struggled to finish it all! We were very grateful for the hats and gloves they generously lent us for our boat trip too. Our room was attractive, comfortable and clean, thoughtfully stocked with things you might need away from home. It's somewhere we'll definitely come back to!
