“Superb apartment in excellent location”
Reviewed July 28, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed for a week in June 2016, having travelled up for the Jutland commemoration. The apartment was spotlessly clean and nicely furnished. It is in a great location on the edge of town, with a 15min walk into the centre of Kirkwall with its lively pubs and restaurants if you don't want to take the car. The owners are kind and very helpful if you need it - and low profile if you don't! We would highly recommend.

“Gorgeous ground level apartment”
Reviewed July 19, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Beautifully decorated and equipped, spacious apartment on ground level.
Only suitable if you come by car though as its out of town within a residential area.
Lovely hosts.

“Great apartment - wonderful holiday”
Reviewed June 13, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My wife and I and 2 friends spent 6 days in early June, when the weather turned out sunny and dry on 5 days. The apartment was very comfortable, and very spacious too. Enjoyed a drink out on the veranda most evenings, with the long days of midsummer. A twenty minute walk to most restaurants or pubs, of which there were many good ones to choose from. We went to Helgi, Lucano, and the Bothy, all different, and all very good food.
Our hosts were very helpful and friendly, and sought to make sure we had no problems, or felt we were missing anything in the flat.

Great time had by all. Wayward suited us as it was in a good location for exploring mainland Orkney and in good walking distance to the centre of Kirkwall where there is a lot of good eating places and thing s to do. The apartment was lovely, very clean and the owners very helpful.

“Fantastic place to stay with a child”

We stayed at the Wayward Apt with our young daughter for a week, and it was really perfect for us. Great kitchen (with cooking spices provided), large living/dining area, very comfortable beds. The wifi works great, too. Everything is new and sparkling clean, and the decor is very pleasant. It's very close to the center of town, a 2 minute drive or 20 min walk. Colin and his family are wonderful hosts, and provided everything we needed. We felt very at home.

“Spacious luxury”
Reviewed August 22, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A very well appointed, clean and spacious apartment- 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms perfect for 2 couples. Loads of space. Helpful, friendly hosts who lived upstairs. Private and quiet just on the edge of town, a quick 12 mins walk to Kirkwall centre.

Reviewed July 26, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We enjoyed a very comfortable stay in this well laid- out and equipped apartment. Everything is here that you could need for your holiday.The property was extremely clean.
The beds were comfortable and in particular, the showers were excellent- walk in and spacious.
The location is peaceful but within walking distance of the centre of Kirkwall.
The owners made us feel very welcome and were really helpful throughout the week.
