What a welcome! Our self contained accommodation was better than the description, everything was so well thought through, from the fresh milk and eggs in the frig through to a choice of coffee, instant to plunger. Our family felt so welcome and truly a home away from home. Thank you Margaret and Ray.

When we left Foinhaven and the Orkney, already missing them, Margaret and Raymond hugged us at the front door. We had been there only for three days, but we were beginning to feel part of the family and part of the place: not only the house, so nice and well run, but also Orphir and the whole island. Foinhaven is... More

I thought I had booked a week's single B&B, at this lovely quiet spot with views of loch, sea and hills all around. But for the cheapest of prices one might expect for B&B I got a whole apartment, with bedroom for three, large shower room, sitting room and fully equipped kitchen (full size cooker, fridge, freezer and microwave, plus...

I loved this B&B and would actually rate this closer to a 5-star stay. Our rooms were cosy and clean (we had two of them for four people) and the view from the front was incredible. Owners were incredibly nice and I would definitely stay there again! My only downsides were the wifi and the noise from those above my... More

With a friendly handshake at their front door, Margaret & Raymond welcome us into their home - upstairs to one if the three apartments, we head into the spacious 3 bedroom apartment - we stayed here 3 years ago and this second visit the apartment is just as clean, comfortable and well stocked with items such as milk, coffee &...

I stayed just one night while working in the area, It was a quiet location, a very nice room and a friendly welcome. It can be a bit difficult to find, I would certainly stay again if in the area. A great breakfast too.

Im back a few weeks now from Foinhaven and haven't rushed to write a review because I wrote a very extensive one last time. Came here just to really refer newer readers back to it, to find I could no longer access it. So here goes with a new review. I would NEVER consider stayiong anywhere else on Orkney. I... More

We stayed for seven nights in one of the self-catering flats upstairs; views of the mist rolling in from the mountain over the loch, the sheep in the fields,t he water. The flat included free wifi and a generous selection of pots, pans, cutlery and crockery in the kitchen. Everything was clean and in good order. The owners were friendly,... More

Went up to Orkney for a long weekend and spent 3 nights at this Bed and Breakfast. Lost count the amount of times stayed there as absolutely fantastic location. Waulkmill Bay nearby with a lovely beach. Rooms are spotless with everything you need ( better equipped than many hotels) with lots of cupboard space. Rooms are bright and airy. Tremendous... More

We have to start this story in how we found this place; we were playing it by ear in booking accommodations while in Scotland, choosing to book each day depending on where we were. This was not a problem for the entire time, EXCEPT when we were on Orkney Island. We landed in Kirkwall just as a big event was... More
