We travelled to Orkney by Ferry, arriving on a Sunday afternoon. Elaine was most helpful, directing us over the phone to the B & B, and on arrival served us with a pot of tea and cakes. It was a friendly and relaxed family home, and nothing was too much bother. Breakfast was brilliant, and varied daily so you weren't eating the same every day. You could choose what time you wanted breakfast each day, and either have it in the family kitchen, or in the separate guest lounge. Elaine even got up at 6 o'clock on our last day so we could have breakfast before catching the early ferry.
Dogs are made welcome at the house, which was a big plus for us, as our lab normally travels with us. Brodie the collie lives at the house too, and is quite happy for you to play ball with him all day!!
We will definitely go back as we were made to feel one of the family.
