Interaction with guests
I always do a “meet and greet” at the chalets and croft house. I feel it is more courteous and welcoming to our guests. I will personally welcome you, show you around and answer any questions and hand over the key for access.

About the neighbourhood
With a variety of attractions, wonderful wildlifte and some amazing scenery, the West Mainland is difficult to rival. It also boast a UNESCO World Heritage Site-Heart of Neolithis Orkney - where you can see the Ring of Brodgar, Mawshowe and Skara Brae. Here you will find the parishes of Sandwick, Birsay, Evie, Harray, Rendall, Firth, Stenness and Orphir ( where we are located). Spectacular cliff scenery contrasts with beautiful sandy beaches while the rich farmland and moorland provide habitats for numerous bird, plants and mannals. Visit Orphir, connected by ferry to Lyness and Flotta, and discover the unique Round Kirk which is just one part of the extensive Viking remains.
