Karen and Andy are fantastic guides and hosts. Lots of local knowledge and taking you off the beaten track. Great bird watching and a beautiful place to visit. The “ light” lunch was 3 course and they’d already fed us coffee and biscuits on arrival. Highly recommended and looking forward to a return visit

Hello Diane Thanks very much for your review, much appreciated. Glad you enjoyed your tour of Westray, we certainly enjoyed showing you both around. We've had a mixed bag of weather since you were here, it's horrible today and feels like winter is close, but yesterday was lovely and we managed a long walk up some of the hills here. Best wishes Andy & Karen

Superb trip all over the island including beaches, shops, a castle, cliffs with the last of the puffins and the Heritage Museum. Knowledgeable and entertaining guides who also provided an excellent home cooked lunch with soup, local cheeses, breads and a fantastic sticky toffee pudding! An excellent day

An excellent day out with the ranger on papa westray - loved it! Jonathan is informative, informal and knows this island and it's birdlife so well. We were really glad that we'd booked this tour - we'd never have seen and learned so much on our own walk. I can now recognise and name lots of seabirds! The Knap of Howar was amazing - a hidden archeological gem that we could get right up close and into. What a place!

Hi Janette! Thanks for your lovely review. Can’t help but notice, though, that it’s a glowing review for Jonathan’s Papay tour ;) it’s ok though, we are always happy to hide under Jonathan’s great reputation. However, I must point out that the puffin in your picture is of the superior quality Westray variety, and not a Poor Papay Puffin. We are glad you decided to stay that bit longer to explore a bit more. Lovely to meet you both. Safe travels, and remember.. puffins make you brave!

Have you ever visited somewhere new and wished that you could immediately get the inside scoop on local life, have the best site visits, and connect with people from the area? That’s exactly what you’ll get with Karen and Andy. The perfect duo for a brilliant day on Westray, you’ll see jaw-dropping cliffs stocked with birds (in season!), enjoy local products for lunch, and have a look back in time at an old Viking village…. All with the perfect pair for banter, storytelling, and all-around hospitality. If you’re considering a trip out of Kirkwall to explore the northern isles, DO IT, stay at the Pierowall Hotel, and book on with Westraak!
