An excellent B&B only a short distance from Stromness with good views over Scapa Flow. Joy is a very friendly and knowledgeable hostess who provides a good breakfast with home baked bread, local produce and home made preserves. We had a very enjoyable stay.

The hospitality at Burnside Farm is excellent and the location is ideal for visiting the Orkney Islands. Breakfast consists of an amazing spread and the landlady is full of advice about where to eat and visit in Orkney.

We'll be back - why on earth would...

When signing in, was met by Joy with a very welcome tea after having cycled in from Kirkwall. The farm is attractive, the room was spacious, comfortable and beautifully appointed (complete with jasrs of sweets!). Stunning view of the isle of Hoy. Breakfast generous and with lots of local produce (including lcoal cheeses)

A very nice place for your stay in Stromness. The hostess, Joy, is simply wonderful. The breakfast is superior and in the beautiful cosy rooms you will always find a jar filled with the best short bread you have ever had - homemade by her.
