The Grainstore is a beautifully appointed accommodation with all you need if you chose to self-cater. It is easy to find as it's next door to the well signposted Corrigal farm museum in the middle of "Mainland".
The owners gave us a most friendly welcome and they have a wealth of knowledge of Orkney, with lots of tips for things to do and places to eat.
They have, it is clear to see, lovingly restored The Grainstore into a fabulous home and separate guest wing in a most wonderful setting.
The bedroom is wonderfully furnished in a tasteful modern fashion, as is the bathroom. The kitchen has all you will need.
The private garden offers amazing views across Orkney, with some lovely seating areas.
We cannot recommend more highly, the Grainstore as a base for exploring the amazing scenery, bird & animal life, and historical sights that Orkney has to offer.
One day, we will revisit these unique islands and without hesitation, we would book again at The Grainstore.
This cottage is situated very conveniently in the middle of Mainland. It is up a long lane but is easy to find as it is right next door to the well-signposted Corrigal Farm Museum. The hosts are friendly and helpful with good knowledge of the local amenities. We had bed and breakfast but self catering is also possible. Kitchen: compact; Shower room: luxurious; Living room: well equipped with comfortable beds and lovely views over the garden. Highly recommended.
