House rules for dog owners. Our high cleaning standards ensure that guests without dogs can confidently stay in our apartment without detecting doggie smells and doggie hairs! However, it would be almost impossible to maintain these high standards if our 'house rules' for dogs weren't respected, so we appreciate your co-operation and respect for others staying after you.

About the neighbourhood
Kringla Apartments are in an enviable position in the peaceful village of Dounby, which is centred in the West Mainland of Orkney. Kringla is within very close walking distance of the local shops, hotel with restaurant, bar and café and the play park. A 20 min drive will take you to Kirkwall or Stromness, the main towns on Orkney. Kringla is situated a short distance from the “Heart of Neolithic Orkney and is near the crossroads with roads to all parts of the island.
Getting around
I would recommend a car but have had guests use the local bus service but be warned it is not very regular! Dounby is located on a crossroads and is very central to the West Mainland so bikes are also a good option.
