About the neighbourhood
West Mainland offers so much. Many of the Historic Scotland sites are within a short drive. Stromness & Kirkwall are only 15 minutes drive away, and the scenery in this area is stunning, both inland with the hills & the Lochs, & also on the coast, with cliff walks etc.
We are situated only a couple of minutes drive away from 2 good hostelries. There is also 3 miles away a small village with fuel, Co-op, doctors, chemist etc.
Getting around
If staying at The Grainstore you need either bicycles or car to get around the island as there is only 2 buses a day, & nearly 1.5 miles to walk to catch them!
