Great time had by all. Wayward suited us as it was in a good location for exploring mainland Orkney and in good walking distance to the centre of Kirkwall where there is a lot of good eating places and thing s to do. The apartment was lovely, very clean and the owners very helpful.

“Fantastic place to stay with a child”

We stayed at the Wayward Apt with our young daughter for a week, and it was really perfect for us. Great kitchen (with cooking spices provided), large living/dining area, very comfortable beds. The wifi works great, too. Everything is new and sparkling clean, and the decor is very pleasant. It's very close to the center of town, a 2 minute drive or 20 min walk. Colin and his family are wonderful hosts, and provided everything we needed. We felt very at home.

“Spacious luxury”
Reviewed 22 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A very well appointed, clean and spacious apartment- 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms perfect for 2 couples. Loads of space. Helpful, friendly hosts who lived upstairs. Private and quiet just on the edge of town, a quick 12 mins walk to Kirkwall centre.

Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We enjoyed a very comfortable stay in this well laid- out and equipped apartment. Everything is here that you could need for your holiday.The property was extremely clean.
The beds were comfortable and in particular, the showers were excellent- walk in and spacious.
The location is peaceful but within walking distance of the centre of Kirkwall.
The owners made us feel very welcome and were really helpful throughout the week.

This is a spacious, comfortable, super-clean house with every facility you could need. It has ample parking and is only a short distance from Kirkwall - perfectly walkable.

Beds are great, showers great - everything is great!

Really peaceful with gorgeous views.

The owners are really friendly and made us most welcome.

Can't wait to go back!
