Shirley and Gerry have found the perfect balance at their delightful B & B: warm and welcoming hospitality, great food, magnificent views, yet privacy when required. I believe it is more than a 10 minute walk to town though, so I caught a taxi from the quay in Kirwall - 2 pounds 80p. I had a small but snug single room on the ground floor, with a beautiful ensuite and reliable wi fi, and a delicious breakfast as well. Unfortunately I could only stay 2 nights but would highly recommend this perfect spot, whether it's for one night or 10. You will be well looked after. [Note for smokers: you can smoke just outside the front door, or in the back garden - filled with birds and beautiful plants. If it's raining, Gerry kindly let me smoke in the conservatory which was also filled with beautiful plants and flowers, many of which would be familiar to other travellers from the "colonies".] Don't bother researching other places: just book this one!
