All types of accommodation to suit every budget can be found via www.orkney.com.
Bear in mind that if you are travelling with a family you may need to be with a vehicle in order to get to beaches, etc., as Stagecoach public transport is limited in certain areas.
Rental vehicles from the airport are via W R Tullock who are agents for Avis, Hertz, etc. There are other vehicle rental options, mostly in Kirkwall.
If you are arriving by ferry, bear in mind that there are various ports of entry to Orkney, so you may wish to choose that which is nearer your accommodation.
Foot passengers may wish to hire a Driver Guide as, otherwise, getting to all the important sites may prove difficult.
I act as both a Step-On Guide [in your vehiclle, assuming there is room for an extra passenger!] or as a Driver Guide for up to 4 passengers, operating as Personalised Orkney Tours:

Visiting Orkney
We are looking into visiting the Orkney Islands this year and as we have never been before we are doing a little research. We are a family of 5 two aduts and three children aged 6,8 and 14. We are looking for a hotel thats suitable for our family. Can you tell us a little bit about what to do to keep everyone happy? We are pretty sporting and normally spend a lot of time on the beach playing sports and swimming. This is going to be a different type of holiday, but one we are looking forward to.
Any tips or advice for us?

Andrea L and Family
We have never been as far north as this before and we are now deciding on where to go on our holidays for 2021. We have had a good look through the information on here for the Orkney islands and on the guide for lerwick. They look very intersting places. Our main concerns are the distances to travel. We live in North Wales. We were planning to drive and use a car ferry to get to the islands. Is there a company that can arrange travel costs and times for the ferrys that would enable us to get to the Orkney Islands first where we plan to stay for a week then head off to Lerwick for anothger week before heading home. We plan to be aaway for around three weeks in total, and it would be in July this year.
Thanks Andrea

Thanks Ian, sounds fantastic. Let's hope we get lucky. We went to Lapland a couple of years ago with thehe sole intention of seeing them, but unfortunately we didn't, so hopefully they will come put for us in thehe Orkney's

Yes you can see the northern lights, we have had a couple of good displays this year so far but it is just down to luck if you get to see them
15/04/2018 @ 7:36 pm

We are sailing to Orkney a little later this year, probably Stromness. Is it possible to see the Northern lights from the Orkneys? and if so at what time of year?
Thanks in advance

Hi Andy and Lily
Our man in the field Richard Marcinko is visiting the islands on Sunday 15th April. He will be there for a full week and will be visiting as many businesses and services as possible in that time. He is really looking forward to meeting the people on these lovely islands and compiling a great visitor guide for both yachtsmen and general visitors.

Personalised Orkney Tours by Jeremy Wilson
Jo Jones, at Personalised Orkney Tours, did us proud on Orkney at the end of last month. She was marvellous. Reviews on her do as much justice as mere words can. I can’t do better. And it is the experience itself which really counts. She is hugely knowledgeable, nothing is too much trouble, she is great company, and full of anecdotes - both official and unofficial - which bring Orkney and its history to life. We were told, before coming for a few days, albeit at the end of the season, that we must get a guide. So true. And especially in the hands of Jo, who shaped our itinerary for us, modified it as needed (weather and preference!), and ensured that we left Orkney alive to and revived by the story of this remarkable land and its inhabitants over the history of humankind. We were four - my wife and I and my cousin and his partner from Kenya - in a couple of campervans. Thank you so much, Jo! My wife and I in UK, we are coming back next summer (rented accomodation this time) for a still closer look. We cannot but ask her to take us to the next level!

If you are looking for something unique to take home from Orkney, a trip to Michael Sinclairs is a good choice. All his pieces are individually made by him. Its obvious he has years of experience and enjoys his work. It has a showroom and a workshop. Its also set in beautiful surroundings. Well worth a visit.

Hi Andrea, most of the businesses dont reply to the comments as they are mainly used for reviews. For information like this, you would be better to contact them direct by phone or email.

Good luck and remember to tell them where you saw them.

Jollys of Orkney.
Just browsing through the information on the Orkney Isles, and "Jollys of Orkney" keeps popping up. We plan to visit sometime in July this year and then head off north to Lerwick. we will be driving and plan to stay in self catering accommodation. Do you have a menu for hampers. We plan to spend quite a lot of time traveeling and it would be helpful for us to take out good food for the day.

Helgis by My Way Crew
Nice atmospheric bar restaurant close to the marina. A viking inspired theme to this small but very well stocked bar.
Really worth a visit or two, (Or three or four, as was our case)
14/10/2019 @ 11:18 am
The Brig Larder by My Way Crew
Well, after reading all great the reviews on here we decided to come and see what all the fuss was about. And we wasn't disappointed. We brought so much back to the boat from here and as a previous person commented, it is the ideal place to stock the boat up with something a little bit different from the usual.
14/10/2019 @ 11:13 am
The Bothy Bar by My Way Crew
When in Kirkwall, a must place to frequent is the Bothy Bar. Great place for catching up over a drink or two. varied range of ales and spirits, many of them locally brewed or distilled. Plenty of locals frequent here as well as visitors, us included.
08/10/2019 @ 7:46 pm
Harbour View Restaurant by Nige and Jo Jackson (Nyja Crew
Lovely bar, restaurant in the Well known and superb Kirkwall Hotel. Good place to meet locals and get to know more about the area. Local knowledge and recommendations are always the best and we got lots if advice in here from locals and frequent visitors to Orkney. Can be nice and cosy, but with enough going on to keep you occupied. We really enjoyed our visits here.
08/10/2019 @ 7:38 pm
Skipper’s Bar by Nige and Jo Jackson (Nyja Crew
We came in here to watch some sports that Nige wanted to see. I wasnt looking forward to it, and nor was my two daughters. How wrong could we have been. Its a relatively busy place but really comfortable at the same time. Plenty to do here and we did come back a few times and will come back a few more no doubt on our next visit.
08/10/2019 @ 7:32 pm
Helgis by Nige and Jo Jackson (Nyja Crew
An ideally located bar restaurant near to the marina stocking lots of different ales. The food served is well above pub food standard and the menu pretty much has something to suit anybody. When in Orkney you will no doubt stumble across Helgis, make sure you dont just pass by, its well worth popping in.
01/10/2019 @ 9:04 pm
The Brig Larder by Sarah Benjamin with the crew
This is one establishment that we couldn't do without on our trip to Orkney. It is THE place to go fro provisions, Love the tag "Yacht Hampers" it is what it says, get a hamper and take it back to the boat. Just full of great local produce.
01/10/2019 @ 8:59 pm
The Bothy Bar by Sarah Benjamin with the crew
Great traditional British bar situated in the Albert Hotel. If you like to see the local history of an area, the Bothy Bar is steeped in it and has information on it all around the place. One of our regular haunts on our visit to Orkney and will continue to be so.
01/10/2019 @ 8:54 pm
Busters Diner by Sarah Benjamin with the crew
A great place to be if you like a really decent burger. Well our kids definitely love a good burger and they really loved it here. When we asked the question "Where do you want to eat tonight?" It was always Busters!! Normally a busy place, but the service was prompt and well worth the short wait.
we will come here again next year.
01/10/2019 @ 8:49 pm
Skipper’s Bar by Sarah Benjamin with the crew
A really lively bar that shows all the sports channels. They also serve great food. Locals and visitors seem to visit here. It really is the ideal place to come and watch live sporting events in a friendly lively atmosphere, with good food and drinks at hand.
23/08/2019 @ 9:34 am
The Brig Larder by Fenton Family & Crew
We found this when we searched for "Yacht Hampers" . what a great idea. we took quite a lot back to the boat and Sarah loved the fact that for once she didnt have to preparefood for us all. It was all done for her. Its definitely changed our outlook on preparing the boat for a passage. Get the Brig larder to prepare it all for you and enjoy the rest of the holiday.
Its really fresh local produce and delicious.
23/08/2019 @ 9:28 am
Helgis by Fenton Family & Crew
Great place for food and drink, and it has a substantial gluten free menu. We had Haggis fondue, a chicken salad, soup, and smoked salmon. everything was perfect. we would recommend people to eat here at least once when visiting. We think you will go again soon.
Enjoy x

Play@wellpark by Carly Rob & kids
Great find. Only problem was trying to get the kids out. Apart from the big leisure centre on the island , things to occupy the little ones can be a little stresful so going for a coffee at the garden centre and finding Play@wellpark is a must for all kids of all ages .Myself and rob chilled in the cafe section whilst we let the little ones blow off steam. Shall be back again hopefully sooner rather than later.

The Brig Larder by Marianna Da’Volls (Rotterdam)

FernValley Wildlife Centre by Jimmy, Ruth & kids
It’s so nice to see a family run business make something from nothing but a dream. Great story and labour of love and to hear the story of starting this from nothing to an absolutely beautiful wildlife centre.

We spoke extensively with Gill and her daughter Lisa about their passion for animals and the care of them.

The meerkats feeding times and talk was excellent by Lisa .

I also recommend Gills home made cakes. Delicious.

Only down side is that we missed the arrival of their monkey lemurs. Don’t worry Lisa , we will be back next year. Keep up the good, hard work. Xx

Busters Diner by Clubber72

Literally bobbed in for a burger and chips and wasn’t disappointed. Was quite busy and waiting time was quick before being served. Always have a soft spot for places like this as I lived in USA for a year. Plenty on the plate a no complaints from me.

Kirkness & Gorie by Jamie & Denise ( Inverness )
Tucked away from the high street behind The Flagship opposite the church but a great find. Being honest we only found it due to nipping into the dentist next door for an emergency appointment.
Excellent place if you like your cheeses and wine. Great selection. Highly Recommend .

Skaill House by Tony ( Harbour Guides Crew )
I can honestly say I’ve fallen in love with the Orkneys and Skaill House is one of them reasons. Steeped in history , I found it fascinating. Loved how they kept it how once they lived . Set in astounding grounds with jaw dropping back drops of the island and coast.

I loved the library, genuine Captain Cooks crockery, WOW factor on the bedrooms and Chanel wardrobe, and was intrigued by the Tiger rug from years gone by.

The staff are very knowledgeable, and Cormac the manager was awesome in giving me a personal tour of this excellent establishment.

Keep the good work up and see you next year x

othing more to say

Great place , rooms are of a high standard , hospitality by all staff is excellent and the bar food beats many.

I’ve not visited the restaurant yet but people coming in to the bar afterwards were raving about the food.

A great one stop shop for your travelling , accomadation , drinking needs in Kirkwall , Orkney

Avalon Guest House by Tony Harbour Guide Crew
An absolute gem of a guest house . I normally stay in hotels however their were no rooms in the inn where I normally stay so decided to stay here for a night .spotless modern en-suite rooms with beautiful views overlooking kirkwell bay

The owners Elaine & Keith made me feel very welcome and after leaving my laptop on the ferry they bent over backwards to retrieve it for me. Thankfully it had been handed in. Honest Orkney folk . Great start to my week here.

I don’t do breakfast however the two families in front of me were raving about how good it was.

It’s 4* but I give it a 5* and have already booked in for next years trip

Our Story I bought my first 3 breeding Zwartbles from Danny McArthy who is the stockman at Longoe farm , at Castle of Mey, Caithness- (The Queen Mother’s Highland Farm) (Pentland Flock ) so, to keep the theme I called mine ‘the Copinsay flock. They are a striking looking sheep, black with a white blaze, originating from Holland, they are really easy to manage and are excellent mothers. Jean Tulloch asked me what like their wool would be to spin, so she sent the first fleeces to the North Ronaldsay mini-mill. ‘What are we going to do with the wool’ Jean asked….I think we’ll knit socks Jean. Me mother usually gave us all socks at Christmas which came from ‘baxters bonny socks’ but they had stopped making them, so I thought we could make wur own ! Jean had this sock knitting machine which her mother had used in North Ronaldsay, so of course I had to have one o them as weel. I was lucky enough to acquire one from England which is over 100 years old and very ornate, but it works perfectly Orkney tweed Loom It soon became obvious that I was never going to manage to knit socks to use up all the wool the sheep was going to produce so I thought I would see if I could get some rugs made. I contacted Jamiesons Spinning Mill in Shetland to see if it could be done and they said yes, but I would have to send up at least 200 kilos of raw wool before they could process it. So I managed to source some more black wool from other farmers and I added some white wool as well and shipped 650 kilos to Shetland. So Orkney Tweed was born. View a 360° tour

Details & Reviews (0)Celina Rupp Jewellery
About Celina Celina has lived in Orkney for the majority of her life and now lives in the Parish of Holm with her family. Celina has gained much of her experience from working within the jewellery trade, learning the fine skills required for her hand crafted pieces. It is the breathtaking landscape of the Orkney Islands, which gives her the inspiration for her unique collections. Her inspiration comes mainly from the beautiful and stunning scenery which surrounds her. Amongst other things, Celina is heavily inspired by the dramatic seas around Orkney, for which the island is renowned. Sailing boats and in particular the traditional Orkney Yole also play a large part in Celina’s designs. The beautiful Italian Chapel, built during the second world war by the Italian prisoners, has been a fascination for Celina and has now been incorporated into one of her key pieces. Celina’s collection aims to inspire you, as much as she is inspired by Orkney and its Celtic backdrop. View a 360° tour

Details & Reviews (2)Michael Sinclair RPT Woodturner
Visitor Attractions
Michael, a born and bred Orcadian, who has been practicing the craft of wood turning for over 28 years, is self-taught. Michael has honed his skills using a combination of practice, experimentation and his desire to produce fine attractive pieces. He was accepted onto the Register of Professional Turners in 2017.
Influence and inspiration is drawn from the works of Neolithic inhabitants of ancient Orkney. During the long bright summer days, the light on the landscapes inspires new designs, while the long dark nights of winter is the time when he is most productive in his workshop.
Wood is obtained from sustainable sources and is processed on site with our own sawmill, from log to finished piece. View a 360° tour

Catering, Delicatessen, English Wine, English Wines, Retail Outlets
Kirkness & Gorie prospered throughout the 20th century. Right from the start, the goal was to supply a mixture of everyday essential foods and exotic specialities. Receipt books from a century and more ago show us selling fine French and German wine, pasta, and coffee, as well as bread, potatoes and jam. Whatever was sold had to be of the highest quality. From 1978 to 2007, Kirkness & Gorie held a royal warrant for supplying Orkney honey to the Queen. (Do we still sell Orkney honey? Yes, but it always sells out very quickly: supply is lower and demand higher than when we used to drive off to one of the palaces with a case of honey in the boot.) View a 360° tour
