My wife and I travelled to Orkney for the very first time despite being Scots based in Edinburgh. And what a treat it was to be welcomed by Joy and Robbie upon our arrival. The Hoy bedroom, bathroom and view were top rate as were the hearty breakfasts and conversations in the conservatory. Wifi and TV reception great too. Joy...

We only stayed one night, but we were made to feel very welcome. Our hostess served us with tea and cake when we arrived early, and was very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was fantastic, we couldn't have asked for anything more.

Breakfasts were wonderful with local produce, including homemade Bere bannocks and porridge from heritage cereals, lots of fresh fruit. Bedroom facilities were spotless - fantastic shower and the most comfortable bed! Within easy reach of Orkney's well known archeological sites. It was a great place to stay and we'd be very happy to stay there again.

This is a great traditional farmhouse B & B on a working farm. Spotlessly clean, and very comfortable, with great views out over the sea at Stromness, we had a wonderful two days here. And the breakfasts, plus home made bread and cheeses, were amazing. If you are staying in Stromness, stay here!

Wonderfully comfortable, great value and spotlessly clean B&B just outside Stromness in the Orkneys. On a farm this is just off the main road into Stromness with a great view over green fields towards Stromness which is literally minutes away and could be easily walked. We stayed a couple of nights in their twin room upstairs which has an ensuite...

The hospitality is bar none at this place. They are absolutely delightful and certainly aim to please. If you are looking for a good hearty meal this is certainly the spot. The only reason for 4 stars and not 5 is at night there was no hot water for the shower. I am guessing they are using a tank and...

Extremely comfortable, spacious bedroom with superb shower room. Such a warm welcome from Joy, who was a source of interesting information and such tasty breakfasts too! A perfect base for our exploration of the Orkneys.

Joy & Robbie are delightful hosts. They cannot do enough for you and they provide very comfortable, very clean and very convivial accommodation. They are slightly out of town but this doesn't cause a problem as it is easily walkable. Restaurants visited were the quaint Stromness Hotel (good meal) and The Ferry Inn again good fare, reserve at both during...

I have been travelling for 35 years and this is the best B & B I have ever stayed in. Sitting with friends, looking out over the harbour of Stromness enjoying a breakfast beautifully prepared from local produce is a special memory.
