My best friend Keith and his lovely Wife Kathy own these properties and you couldn't have a more perfect couple to run this type of dwelling! I have seen these properties being built from scratch and this Year in February will have the pleasure of taking my family up to Orkney to stay in them 4 nights! For anyone coming to Orkney to get a taste of its unique experience, both of these people will point you in the right direction for fun and educational things to do! Kieth has a wealth of knowledge about the German sunken fleet that lies dormant on the sea bed of Scapa Flow which Buxa looks over. Kathy will keep you informed of any Folk or other festivals happening during your stay as well. All in all I can assure you a trip to Orkney and the luxury of staying at Buxa Chalets will leave you charged and invigorated and stay in your memory for the rest of time, enjoy. I know we are going to this February!
