Mine hosts, Dawn and Harald Wishart, made this our second memorable visit. Bed - very comfortable, room very well appointed and to the highest standards of decor and cleanliness. Breakfast - the widest selection you will get anywhere, freshly cooked to order (remember to pre-order the smoked haddock, delicious with a poached egg on top!) and an "eat as much as you like" attitude. ideal if you are off on a hard days work/walk. Lovely lounge to relax in with large flat screen TV. We were even treated to a drink of beer while we watched the Champion's League final, helped get over the disappointment of the result. Short walk to the the town for the best beers on Orkney - Orkney Dark Island and Scapa Special. Try the Royal Hotel for a couple of pints, a short walk up the road to the chippy (best haddock and chips I've had) and back to the Royal to top up!
On leaving we were offered, and gratefully accepted, the opportunity to shower before we caught the early evening ferry. Dawn and Harald - thanks very much for having us.
