This place is a little difficult to find, as the sign rather blends into the wall it is on, and it is out of town or village. However, it is worth it. The grounds are lovely, and the bedrooms very nicely decorated and comfy. We had 6 travelers in 4 rooms for three nights, and the upstairs suite had a great sitting room. The bed was a little claustrophobic as it was in an alcove with walls on three sides. Also, we were there in June when the sun doesn't set until 12:30, and rises around 3am - there is a skylight over the bed that was imperfectly covered by foil. But the place was warm with a heater and had plenty of space! Breakfast was at a grand table downstairs, and there is a huge lounge on the first floor. Morag was a kind hostess. Warning, there is only enough parking for 2 or 3 cars. Also, no place really close to eat - you need to go into Kirkwall or Stromness for food. However, it's a lovely drive. Kirkwall is only about 10 minutes away, and full of choices.
The Mill is about 3 minutes away from Maes Howe, Stones of Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar.More
