We want to make your stay with us as comfortable and enjoyable as we can whilst also ensuring the safety of yourselves, our staff and all other guests. Due to the latest advice regarding Coronavirus we have had to slightly adjust how we operate. Unfortunately, we can no longer be there to greet you on arrival but we will ensure that your accommodation is ready for you and that any information you may require is sent to you prior to your arrival.

We kindly ask that you follow government advice and do not travel to Orkney if you have had any symptoms of Covid-19 and have not completed the correct period of self-isolation. Click here to read the current Scottish government guidance on travel

From Monday 17th May, Orkney will move to level 1.  The rules for self-catering (including overnight stays) are in line with the private dwelling socialising rules as set out in the level’s framework. In level 1, a maximum of 6 people from up to 3 households can socialise in a private dwelling.  Children under the age of 12 from these households do not count towards the total number of people permitted to meet.  This guidance is reviewed at regular intervals and will be updated accordingly.
