We arrived in Kirkwall on a rainy evening after a bumpy flight from Stornoway, via Inverness, and were so grateful for the warm friendly greeting from Jane and Alasdair. After we dried off, Alasdair drove us back to town with suggestions for places for a meal. Our room was spacious, spotless, bright and airy and very well-appointed. The bathroom was large with a great shower!The Avalon is a purpose built, modern B and B, right on the bay and only a 2 minute drive or a pleasant,flat 15 minute walk into town.
Jane's breakfast was wonderful - kippers, local sausage, free range eggs, nothing was too much trouble. Helpful advice and information leaflets about things to see and do in Orkney are cheerfully given. I would heartily recommend the Avalon as one of the best B and Bs in UK!
