We were blown away by the friendly and homely service given by Moira and her family during our week stay. Moira could not be helpful enough which was in keeping with the other locals on the island. Her breakfasts were very filling and not lacking in choice. The rooms were very comfortable and quirky, situated around this old granary mill.... More

My wife and spent four days at 'The Mill' in April and we couldn't have chosen a better place from which to see the delights of the Orkneys. Morag is a wonderful host and a mine of information about the islands, their history, current developments and interesting things to do and see. Accommodation first class, food first class. WiFi was... More

Even though I only stayed 3 days, Morag was wonderful about giving me tips, directions, and maps to find neolithic sites, restaurants and views. The mill is a fun place to stay - very well maintained and a unique experience. If you think this place sounds intriguing and cozy, you will probably love it. If you like to be pampered... More

We had a hard time finding the mill (at night, after forgetting to download directions), but it was well worth it once we did. Morag was a wonderful host and did not seem to mind our late arrival. She booked our tour for Maes Howe for us and provided us with local maps to help plan our visit. Our room... More

Morag was the best host we've experienced in a month of travelling around Scotland. Her converted mill home was exquisite, and the room we stayed in (the Mill Burn) provided everything we needed for a comfortable, pleasant stay. It was with excitement after a day out exploring the treasures of Orkney that we'd come back to the Mill of Eyrland... More

My wife and I have been staying here on our Orkney visits for 10 years now and our experience only gets better. Morag is a wonder and she preserves the ambiance and authenticity of the Inn with loving care. The great table for breakfast is one of the best places anywhere to meet interesting people and have great food. We... More

My wife and I had intended a return visit for many years. Our first stay was so magical that we were determined to return and jumped at the opportunity when we had a few days free in October. The mill is an amazing building with many of the original features carefully restored. We were lucky that the Millburn suite was... More

Our stay at the Mill was wonderful. It was a great location for touring the Island. Morag was a fabulous hostess. She helped to schedule some tours and provided maps before we set out for the day. The breakfast was so yummy! We would stay here again for sure!

We just spent two nights at the Mill of Eyrland while visiting Orkney. The B and B is in a converted mill, and we slept listening g to the sound of the Mill Burn running by tow stories below. While within easy access to all the sights, and to Stromness, it was on a quiet road. The decorating is antique... More
