We had a lovely meal at The Northern Sands Hotel. The restaurant was nice, the prawn cocktail starter was good, and my lamb dish was extremely enjoyable. My wife also enjoyed the chicken dish. We would certainly return.

Stopped off for a meal whilst travelling NC500. Obviously has undergone a major refurbishment. Meal was delicious and good value for money. Would definitely recommend. Did not stay here but would definitely consider if back in the area.

This newly renovated hotel was great. Had a very good dinner with their Sunday roast and the bar had an excellent selection of local whiskey. This was a very pleasant stop on our way to the Orkneys. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.
