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!

The room was nice and clean. Ailsa was very nice. We never spent alot of time there as we were visiting family. However Ailsa made us feel very welcome.

Ailsa is a very friendly and welcoming host. Not a native Orcadian herself but possesses a genuine love and knowledge of the Islands. This is great value for travellers on a budget.

Ailsa has a nice, cozy place that is very convenient to Kirkwall and the airport. With a car it's a great base for exploring the rest of mainland Orkney. She also provided a lot of helpful information both before and after check-in.

Interaction with guests

I work during the day and tend to go to the gym or do something active afterwards. I'm typically at home more over the weekends but still like to keep busy and do as much as I can outdoors. I am friendly and welcoming to guests but you might not see me that much!

About Ailsa
Hi, my name is Ailsa and I'm lucky enough to live in beautiful Orkney. I'm from a wee village in the Highlands called Newtonmore, and truly love Scotland! I lived in Edinburgh before moving to Orkney in October 2016 for work. I love meeting new people and hosting people. …
