We stayed here in August. It is a big house in the orcadian country. The owners, Margaret and Raymond, are beautiful people ready to make you feel comfortable, as if you are at home with your family. We had something like an apartment that was all for us. Rooms were clean and cozy and every day Margaret left homemade biscuits... More

We stayed at Foinhaven for 5 nights, together with another couple of friends. We therefore had ample opportunity to taste the great variety of dishes on our hostess Margaret's breakfast menu, all excellent, made from locally sourced ingredients of prime quality. The rooms are generous in size and have good views. Our hosts Raymond and Margaret were absolutely charming and... More

Due to a travel mix-up, we ended up spending a night at Foinhaven Bed & Breakfast in Orphir. Our hosts, Margaret and Raymond, were kind enough to allow us to stay with them when we had problems with our previous reservation on Orkney. The room was immaculate and the bed was very comfy. The rural setting was peaceful and bucolic.... More

We stayed here for a week on a family holiday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Margaret and Raymond are brilliant hosts. We had the smallest of the self catering apartments which was perfect for myself, my wife and our 14-year-old daughter. It had a massive one bedroom with double and single bed, big bathroom, a lounge/kitchen with great views and plenty... More

We were dumped rather unceremoniously on Margaret and Raymond by a different accommodation place at the last minute. They were so kind and gracious, and in the end we were able to stay in one of the self-catering units after spending the first night in one of their ensuite B&B rooms. The apartment was very well laid out, well-stocked with... More

This is a guesthouse in Orphir, a short (~15-min drive) from Kirkwall on the Orkney mainland (very practically located for reaching anywhere on the mainland or any island connected to the mainland via causeway), which offers either B&B rooms (on the ground floor, where the hosts live) or self-catering apartments (upper floor). We took one of the latter. It's run... More

Spent 3 nights at Foinhaven. Great facilities, especially the self-contained apartments, which add the extra flexibility. Margaret's breakfast's are to die for and Margaret's and Raymond's friendliness make you feel you are one of the family. Can't wait to go back.

We stayed for 3 nights here while we explored the abundant neolithic and Viking sites around the Mainland island and Rousay.
