Top notch stay
Absolutely stunning place and a real value for money. Couldn't recommend it enough. The hot tub outside might cost you extra but is a cherry on the cake that the apartment is and you won't regret using it. Just ask the owner to have a glimpse at the temperature. It was 45°C when we received it and took a long time for it to cool down a little. The women had it for themselves for the first hour before the men could join.

A real gem
Truly lovely little place, real gem of a find. Ideal base for exploring the area. We could have spent a week there. Fully equipped kitchen, couldn’t fault it. I also wish I knew where they got their muesli from, such a rich taste

Excellent stay
This place was great. Excellently finished accommodation with everything you could possibly need. No words would do this place justice. It's such a shame we were only booked in for one night as I would have loved to stay longer. Great location for exploring this corner of Scotland and Orkney. If back in this area would definitely cone here again.

8/10 Very good

Lovely Retreat
Really nice, quirky place. Warm and cosy with everything you need and more. Not far from some beautiful scenery but you do need a car. Owners very helpful and friendly. Some areas of the bed and bathroom could have been cleaner.
