Taylor’s Rest Accommodation

The two chalets would be located at Groatsetter, Tankerness, close to a former wartime airfield and a great place from which to explore Orkney’s wartime history. We have received enthusiastic support from Kinlay Francis who runs Orkney Uncovered tours with his partner Kirsty.

Kinlay would be delighted to offer tours of the sites related to the two world wars. He thinks that Taylor’s Rest would offer a fresh new experience to visitors to Orkney. OIC’s Economic Development Department have also indicated that there may be capacity for new niche holiday accommodation in Orkney.

RSPB Orkney have offered to assist with advice around landscaping and planting the Groatsetter site to encourage waterfowl and aquatic wildlife. A burn runs through the parcel and we will be creating a pond to enhance its appeal to wildlife.

Thank you for your support.
