I can’t say enough good things about Antony and this place. The hospitality is unmatched. The breakfasts are delicious. The location is picturesque and quiet but so close to down town as well. I highly recommend a stay here.

Fine place in the Orkneys. Very sweet hosts. You need to drive when in the Orkneys no matter what, but they are as centrally located to everything to see and do as can be

There is no doubting that a car makes it a lot easier to get around, but we do have many guests who manage without. There is a public transport system which is not ideal but workable and also many people offering private tours if you prefer.

Both elegant and liveable, a gorgeous restored & tree-clustered mansion overlooking the classic Highland Park Distillery. Friendly & helpful family owners, intentionally quiet surroundings, great breakfasts, easy access. Art societies apparently meet at the house now & then, and …

The room was comfortable and airy overlooking Highland Park distillery. The breakfast was at one table with other guests which I found very fun and communal...a good mix. Our hosts were very helpful and accommodating. The sitting rooms were a bit dark and clearer directions to t…

Thank you for your feedback we are glad that you enjoyed the breakfast. It is in the nature of this large Gothic building that some of the rooms will be a little dark, but we are currently developing an upstairs library area which will be much lighter than the downstairs gallery where you sat. I would accept your point about the directions, although there are very strict rules here about putting signs up - especially as the bottom of the drive isn't our property. We have a rolling programme of renovating the building, but we are also trying to avoid losing the original character of the place.
