Wheeling Steen
Cuisines: British
Description: Family run art gallery located on the picturesque island of Westray. A wide variety of products are available, including photography, original art, prints, handmade cards, creatively designed gifts and souvenirs. Most of which are designed and produced on the premises. A unique feature in the gallery is a deck cabin from a 19th century shipwreck. We look forward to welcoming you.

We were staying with friends on the island and popped in while sightseeing. The coffees were excellent and there were plenty of lovely cakes to choose from. The cafe also has a small selection of gifts/souvenirs and a gallery with some wonderful pictures which can be purchased and have posted to you if you haven't the room to take them with you.

The only problem was choosing which cake to have. They all looked wonderful, and the two we chose were excellent. The surroundings are gorgeous - superb pictures of Westray in a light and airy gallery. Not to be missed

We are regular visitors to Orkney and this gallery and coffee shop never fails to impress. The photographs of the island are beautiful and vibrant and you can collapse in a comfy seat with an excellent cappuccino and home made cake.

My wife and I have been going to the Wheeling Steen Gallery about 8 times a year since it opened a few years ago.

It is a lovely place in which to relax, surrounded by wonderful pictures of Westray. Everything is spotlessly clean and all the Rendall family are invariably very welcoming and pleasant. The cakes are always superb. We can recommend it very highly.

After a very early sailing from Kirkwall for a day out on Westray, we stopped here for a cup of tea and a pecan caramel shortbread bite, both of which were lovely.
The cafe/ art studio is light, airy and atmospheric.
There is an old ship's bridge house forming part of the building which is to be developed into a walk-in exhibit.
A very pleasant mid-morning stop
