It is hard to find anything to add to all the other excellent reviews posted here except to say that Ashleigh lived up to expectations when we stayed for four nights in August. Being purpose built it is very spacious with a conservatory for those inevitable (on Orkney) rainy days. The view is wonderful: green fields with horses and the... More

We spent 2 nights at Ashleigh this month. Audrey looked after us so well and her attention to detail was perfect. Excellent breakfast, comfortable room and lots of Orkney knowledge. We can't recommend this B&B highly enough.

We stayed at the Ashleigh B&B for 5 nights in July. The B&B is purpose built with a lounge, dining room and large double bedrooms with ex suites. Audrey made sure we had everything we needed, even doing some laundry for us. The breakfasts were fantastic and there was always tea, coffee and biscuits in the lounge. The rooms were... More

I had the pleasure of staying here for four nights in April 2015 during a motorcycle tour. I was immediately made welcome and the advice given for places to visit was invaluable. The nearby Merkister Hotel was a pleasant walk away for evening meals and drinks. Breakfast was wonderful and the rooms I stayed in were immaculate. My final breakfast... More

We stayed at Ashleigh for seven nights at the end of April / beginning of May. As a B&b it was excellent in every respect. The house is modern and purpose-built as a B&B with accommodation for the owners, too. The bed rooms were excellently furnished and very comfortable. The breakfasts, with a wide range of fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurts... More

This b&b is extraordinarily good value and exceeds the quality of many much more expensive places. The accommodation was extremely comfortable and thoughtfully designed. Nothing was forgotten. The breakfasts were superb - a great range of options all cooked to perfection. Superb fresh fruit every morning too. A microwave and crockery were also available if you wanted to make yourself...

Friendly informative hosts, perfect peaceful accommodation, centrally situated for many of Orkney's sites. Good eating places nearby. Accidentally left a pocket camera and our host drove 5 miles to catch us up and return to us. Would rate as first class and would certainly revisit.
