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...

Breakfast has to be the best ever. Joy makes her own jams and bread and cooks fresh food to order. You will not be disappointed in the Burnside B&B. If...

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...

My mother and I stayed here for three nights during our visit to Orkney. Burnside Farm was just excellent. The room (Hoy View) was comfortable and homey, with a modern bathroom (both rainfall and handheld shower) and so many nice little touches -- fresh flowers, beautiful textiles, real china cups-and-saucers, etc. There was also a great view over Stromness. Breakfast...

Burnside Farm is a terrific location -- an easy walk down the hill to Stromness and beautiful views of the harbor. Joy's breakfasts were terrific, featuring homemade or local products. We thoroughly enjoyed our four-night stay.

Joy and Robbie were fantastic hosts at this wonderful house on their working farm. The rooms were lovely and comfortable, and our view looked right over Stromness, and was a short walk away (convenient for dinner or shopping). The breakfasts were outrageously good. Being on a farm mean fresh eggs, dairy, and produce all prepared expertly by Joy herself. Protip:...
