We booked a 2 night stay at Ashleigh on our way to Westray so that we could revisit some of our favourite sites on Mainland and wished we could have stayed longer. It is a beautiful purpose built B&B and we received a very warm welcome from Audrey on our arrival complete with tea, shortbread, oatcakes and cheese in the...

After researching B&Bs in Mainland Orkney, we settled on a 20 night stay at Ashleigh. Looking at all the 5 star reviews, the photographs and details of facilities, we thought we'd be happy with our choice. When we arrived, we were absolutely sure we'd made the right decision. A beautiful, purpose built B&B with helpful, friendly and knowledgeable hosts. The...

This B&B exceeded expectations. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and lovely, set in the peaceful countryside of the Orkney Islands but within easy driving distance of incredible prehistoric ruins. The breakfast was truly home-cooked and delicious! Our host was friendly and helpful, giving us information that allowed us to see unusual places we would otherwise have missed. For example, she...

This place was absolutely the best place we stayed during our 6 week trip to the UK. It is centrally located for visiting the Neolithic sites on Orkney, or spending a day in Kirkwall. The hospitality was incredible - great advice on things to see and do and places to visit - and the breakfasts were fantastic with a variety...

Ashleigh is a beautiful home set in a very quiet part of Orkney. Our hosts were welcoming, gracious and very helpful. Our room was very comfortable, exceptionally clean and had a lovely view across fields and farms. Breakfasts were substantial and of excellent quality. We will be back again for another visit.

Start with a location that's perfect for touring Orkney, right in the middle of the mainland. Add spacious, comfortable rooms in an exceptionally well-built house. Mix in delicious breakfasts, with HOME MADE traditional breads. Top off with great advice on sightseeing, along with insight to the practices, traditions and history from a native Orkadian (and even a tour of their...

This B&B is immaculate. The breakfast was generous and tasty, the hosts were friendly and helpful, the bedroom was warm, comfortable, clean and modern. The mattress was comfortable to sleep on. The B&B is very well situated right in the middle of Neolithic Orkney, near all the most important sites. It is a short distance to walk from the B&B...

Very happy we chose this place. It is immaculate, very comfortable and the owners are really attentive. Best of all is the delicious Scottish breakfast. The location is a short drive away from Skara Brae, Stenness, Maeshowe and the Ring of Brodgar. I don't think we could have chosen a better place to stay.

We recently stayed here for three nights and would definitely have stayed longer if time permitted. It is extremely comfortable, and very nicely finished with spotless rooms. We slept very well here. Audrey, the hostess, was very helpful with suggestions and information about the many interesting places to visit on the island. Good breakfasts that include fish. Highly recommended!
