We recently spent 3 nights at the Burnside Farm and enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The location is convenient to all locations on Mainland you may want to visit and within Stromness itself, it is near the center of town but outlying enough to be peaceful and quiet. It sits atop a hill overlooking the harbor and town providing beautiful morning views upon waking. Add to that the charm of being on a farm with dairy cows grazing nearby and the setting is bucolic and restful. We stayed in the Scapa view room which was lovely and with no exaggeration had the most comfortable bed we encountered on our two week tour of Scotland. The bed linens and towels were luxurious and the room was replete with little amenities such as delicious shortbread, chocolates, coffee/tea maker, etc. Bathrooms were modern and immaculate. Best of all was the smell of Joy's home baked bere bannocks she made daily. Heavenly! Wonderful breakfast whether the full Scottish or smoked Haddock and eggs. Her porridge was delicious, even my husband, who never eats oatmeal at home, enjoyed it!! And the fresh berries every morning were of the best quality. We would definitely stay here again on any return trip to Orkney.
