Would thoroughly reccommend this B & B with restaurant. Very warm welcome from Jane & Geoff who were excellent hosts. Arrived off the ferry and immediately offered tea and home made cake. Room very comfortable, elegantly decorated with big fluffy towels in the bathroom. Food excellent and all cooked fresh by Geoff. Highlights were the sea bass and the pumpkin soup with home made sun dried tomato bread. Steak from local meat was very good too. Comfortable lounge for relaxing with view of the spectacular beach. Come to Sanday for beaches - one for every direction of the sun and wind. Also not to be missed is the Quoyness neolithic chambered cairn - entrance is a crawl but will worth it. We will be back - next time in summer for a swim.
