My house is in Kirkwall, close to many great activities on offer in Orkney. It's a 2 bedroom semi-detached house with a south facing garden. It's a 5 minute walk from the centre of Kirkwall. It is a prefect spot to explore, including Skara Brae, the Ring of Brodgar, Maeshowe, the Italian Chapel, the Brough of Birsay, Yesnaby, St Magnus Cathedral, Scapa and Highland Park Distilleries and plenty of other favourite sites!

Ailsa's welcome was warm and friendly on a cold winter's day. Her house is within walking distance of all the shops and places of interest within Kirkwall, and her directions to get there from the bus stop was accurate. A great host and welcoming home.
