My mom, my brother, and I stayed at Castlehill Orkney for three nights in May. Jim and Denise were amazing hosts; they could not have been more friendly or welcoming. It was very much like staying over with friends we just hadn't met yet. Both dinner and our breakfasts were all delicious. The location is wonderful, on the north side... More

Jim and Denise are great hosts. The evening dinners are wonderful and the location could not be better. Jim fixed me up with fishing - including tackle and has a great link to a local ghillie with an uncanny ability to find trout on the world class lochs. House looks over the water to Roussay and is next to the... More

We spent three nights with Jim and Denise in their lovely home from the 3rd to 5th of August 2013. It was immensely enjoyable and the service we received was second to none! Despite the fantastic setting of the house and the wonderful views, the real gems in the whole set-up are Jim and Denise. They were the perfect hosts... More

We had a superb stay at Castlehill in July. Our hosts couldn't have been more friendly, the house was lovely, and the food - especially Jim's fish and Denise's home baking - was delicious. For local attractions, I would recommend the RSPB's Birsay Moors reserve (where I watched displaying Red-throated Divers, Hen Harriers, and Short-eared Owls at close range, 10... More

We spent three days in Castlehill from 29 to 31 of July 2013. Location is very nice, great view on the coast and on the isles, 17 miles from Kirkwall, on the NW coast. Very close to Neolithic monuments and sided to natural reserve. But the best are the people running the estate:we arrived with a couple of problems (... More

We've been there two days, and we have been pampered throughout. Jim and Denise are very pleasant hosts. They go the extra mile to help. The food is excellent, always freshly prepared, and in abundant quantity; they gave excellent advise about what to see in Orkney based on our preferences, and they did all the bookings for us. We recommend... More

Lovely rural location, very nice rooms, well appointed. Delicious meals - and welcoming hosts - Jim and Denise are generous hosts and make your stay special. A glass or two shared in the little conservatory most memorable.
