“Highly recommend this fully equipped and spotless apartment (No 2)”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Apartment has loads of room, spotless and has every piece of equipment you could ask for. Well placed in Dounby, with a fully stocked store a 2 minute walk away and some nice craft shops as well. I would highly recommend a stay here: Kay was most welcoming, and thanks for the free range eggs! We will be back.

I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much. My guests often tell me how convenient they find the apartments being central to many of the tourist sites and the abundance of beautiful beaches and bird reserves. The Co-op and other local amenities are so close but you still feel you are in the countryside.

“What an excellent place to stay.”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The apartment and fittings were all we hoped. Spacious, nicely furnished and appointed, and, everything worked. Kay was lovely and very helpful and gave us many suggestions of places to visit, and the best times to go. We definitely recommend Kringla; we had such a good stay. We would love to return to Orkney and Kringla. Thanks for making it very special.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed in Kringla 1 on my recent visit to the Orkney Islands with my Daughter. The apartment is amazing and has everything you could possible need. It is situated in a good location with easy access to all parts of the islands. Thank you to Kay for the lovely basket of goodies and to Alistair for the eggs (they were very yummy) I would highly recommend the apartments and will certainly stay there when we visit Orkney again.
