We stayed here for two nights while exploring Orkney. What an absolute delight, the room was beautifully decorated with individual items of furniture which perfectly suited the farmhouse setting. And the bathroom was outstanding, with everything you could ask for including an anti-misting mirror. Extra touches such as traditional Scottish shortbread, chocolates and cotton buds all made it feel very...

Joy made me feel right at home as soon as I arrived. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. I loved the variety of teas and lovely toiletries. The views from the room over Stromness and Scapa Flow were stunning. The breakfast was fabulous, the fresh berries and rhubarb were the most delicious I have tasted!

We had 2 nights in this delightful b&b in August. It was easy to find from the ferry terminal in Stromness and on arrival we were warmly greeted by Joy. We were too early to check in so received excellent tourist information and set off to explore. The room, when we evntually got back, was beautifully decorated in keeping with...

Truly a special place. Our host, Joy, went out of her way to provide the little touches that made us feel at home---tea and biscuits for our room, candies on the dressing table, a fully modern and well-equipped bath. Her breakfasts are the best--we had our first taste of her homemade bere bannock with her special jam. Burnside Farm is...

Joy was welcoming and sweet, fun to talk to. Breakfast was the best! Eggs straight from Joy's chickens. Robbie was quiet but very nice. And Ben the Border Collie was fun to watch as he worked his cows.

We have just spent two nights here and so glad we chose Burnside Farm. Welcoming us with tea and a freshly baked sponge, Joy was friendly and helpful. The bedroom and bathroom were spotless, bed very comfortable and the shower powerful. Breakfast - fantastic. Freshest eggs and milk, fat sweet raspberries, proper bread toasted, with marmalade and jam in cut...
