Just got back from Orkney and a 5 day stay at Burnside Farms. It was great and we'll stay there again if and when we are next in Orkney. Joy and Robbie were very welcoming, our room was extremely comfortable (with a great view) and the breakfasts were tasty and filling (cold to start and cook-to-order to follow). Very much a come-and-go as you please kind of place.
I was concerned prior to our trip that this B&B was just starting and that it was on a dairy farm. Both concerns were unfounded; Joy is working hard at making this an excellent B&B and any noise, etc. from the dairy farm were non-existent. Joy even had breakfast available for us with an early ferry departure om our last day; we ate in the kitchen and felt like we were family. It's a 15 minute walk from Stromness which is a very pleasant little town (much quieter than Kirkwall which was a big plus for us). We can recommend Burnside without hesitation.
