This was the nicest gentlemen ever! Rented a bike and rode about 23 miles total that day. He provided me with 2 maps to set me on my way and allowed me to return it the next morning. Wonderful experience!

We have rented the bikes to cycle around on Orkney's mainland for a day and visit the prehistoric sites and the Orkney Brewery. The bikes are of good quality and comfortable. The bikes were delivered to our hotel on request (small fee).

Good quality bikes for rent at £10 a day. A very convenient service - especially if you want to take a bike over to one of the southern ferries from Stromness. Booking ahead by phone or e-mail is advised as this is a small scale...More

Orkney Cycle Hire runs out of John Heddle's garden shed, which may not sound promising, but in fact it's just brilliant. John will sort you out the best bike for you from his substantial stock - and he renews 1/3 of it every year -...More
