A Bed and Breakfast in Orkney

Photo - Holland House

Jan and John delight in welcoming guests to their family home which was built as the manse for the Anderson Kirk opposite in 1844. They have run Holland House as a Bed and Breakfast since 2005 and their local knowledge proves invaluable in steering guests to hidden gems as well as the main World Heritage Sites.Holland House is in the heart of the West Mainland but very convenient for island hopping and visiting the outer isles: Westray, Sanday, North Ronaldsay. Or Hoy, Rousay, Shapinsay to name but a few.
Guests are encouraged to come and go as they please with a welcome cup of tea or coffee and a homemade cookie on their return.
Guests are delighted to have their national flag flying while they are in residence and John has a collection of around 30 flags!
Relax in front of an open fire or in the conservatory overlooking the walled garden which, unusually for Orkney is full of mature trees and let the peace and quiet of Orkney wash over you.

The Private House Stay's Guide


A short ferry crossing off the North coast gets you to magical islands of the Orkneys - a fertile and spirtual place that contains over 12,000 neolithic ruins, standing stones and burial chambers. The Old Man of Hoy is one of climbing's great landmarks. Scapa Flow was also a huge seabase in the Second World War and the site of the scuttling of the First World War German High Seas Fleet and a great sports diving location. Whether island hopping by ferry or plane, visiting Skara Brae or the Ring of Brodgar, there is much to do in Orkney and its remote location stops too many tourists.
