Ideal location for a explorers week. Bus at the end of the road, Highland Park Whisky distillery 10 mins walk. The owners made our stay even easier recommending places to visit, sharing his own experience in the island. As a amateurs photographers we found this the perfect place. Very well equipment flat, comfortable and quiet. Secure place, had not problems at all.
Love to visit again!
Spent 4 weeks living here and it was an absolute pleasure with fully equipped kitchen which covered all eventualities that 4 men could come up with cooking lol. Beds changed and cleaned once a week so no quibbles their either. Highly recommended.
In Kirkwall for a wedding. booked this accommodation for a long weekend for the family, whilst my sister and family rented the upstairs accommodation. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The flat was extremely well equipped, clean and clearly well looked after. There are 4 double bedrooms, all of a reasonable size. The living area may be a little tight for space if there were 8 adults, but was perfectly adequate for our party of 5 adults and one very active 3 year old!
The beds were very comfortable, and the shower rooms all had local Orkney soaps, which even my husband commented were lovely.
Unfortunately the view is of the chandlery yard, but there's a pretty flower bed at the door, a picnic bench, use of the drying green and a little hidden yard round the back which is very peaceful and quite lovely ( though not suitable for the toddler due to a steep bank to a stream ) Ideal adult peaceful spot!
Its was a 20-25 minute walk to the centre of Kirkwall for me with my recent knee replacement, less if you're fitter. The taxis were very reasonable for the return journey, around £4 in 2016. The Highland Park distillery is literally round the corner, and my son thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Good central spot for seeing the island. There was ample parking for our motorhome.
We wouldn't hesitate in renting this property again.
