We booked for a week for our 1st visit to Orkney, we were not dissapointed. The Noust far exceeded our expectations and there were ice touches like local oatcakes and local fudge and milk in the fridge for our arrival.
The self catering apartment was spotlessly clean and was well laid out with open plan living/Dining/Kitchen area nd a view over the fields and you could make out the sea in the distance. We were treated to many birds in the fields and a Hen Harrier hunting too. There was a wee area outside where we had a bbq one night and watched the evening light fade away.
Part of the bildig is the pub and we ate there 2 nights it is nothing fancy, standard pub grub with a couple of specials which did change nightly but the food was fresh, cooked when ordered and was tasty with good portions.
The self catering flat was the absolute gem though and really we would stay again (although sadly the whole complex is up for sale - oh for a lottery win)
I really hope the new owners take as much care and pride as the current ones as it, as it is, comes highly recommended. It is a good location for the sites and is a short drive to both Stromness and Kirkwall. And we were also allowed our dog to stay too.
If the current owners read this Thanks for a great stay
