Orkney is an incredible place to visit, full of sites of historical interest, beautiful beaches and an abundance of wildlife and this is the ideal place to stay and see it. Being pet-friendly doesn't mean slumming it. Kringla 2 is a modern apartment, immaculate and clean and has absolutely everything you could possibly need for a totally relaxed holiday. We've been to loads of holiday homes in the past and this is the first time we didn't need to wash any cutlery, cups etc before use.
We were made to feel very welcome by Kay and given great advice regarding visiting the various sites. Also, the breakfast bulletins she sent to us each morning were very helpful. (They give you useful information about what is happening on that particular day, ie, tide times, free guided tours etc.)
Kringla 2 is perfectly situated in Dounby, for going to the post office, Co-op, petrol station, excellent butchers and a wonderful jewellers, and Dounby itself is ideally placed for driving off to the numerous locations such as Maes Howe, the Ring of Brodgar or the Brough of Birsay to name a few. Plus we didn't need to leave the village to see short-eared owls, as we went most nights to watch one hunting just by the school.
What a fabulous place to visit. Still so much more to see. We will definitely be back. Kringla 2 comes highly recommended.
I booked all three apartments for a family trip to Orkney. No. 2 is available for visitors with pets. The apartment is well fitted with all that is needed for a self-catering holiday. it is tastefully decorated with modern fittings in the kitchen and bathroom. Shops and a pub are close by. The central location is ideal for all tourist attractions and Kay is very friendly and helpful.
apartment is so good that we will be using it twice a year for as long as we are able , 15 minutes from the ferry , 15 minutes from Kirkwall for shopping , minutes from the lochs that surround it for my fishing , pub and the co-op on the doorstep .
wee bit worried about giving a nice review as I don`t want someone sneaking in and booking my weeks before me .
if you book you won`t be disappointed , much like Orkney as a whole .
