Accommodation and lots more...
Highland Park House is an impressive mansion on the outskirts of Kirkwall. We are within easy reach of the town centre, but we are also bordered by open countryside with walks through fields to nearby beaches. We can offer bed and breakfast with a range of en-suite and standard rooms. We also have a lovely self catering serviced apartment available. This will accommodate up to six people. The bed and breakfast rooms are mostly furnished in a period style to match the building. Rooms will have features such as Victorian iron beds and original artwork. We offer a flexible approach - contact us with your requirements and we will do what we can to match your needs,
As well as general and holiday accommodation, we offer day and residential courses in Art, Writing and Drama (ideal for a rainy day or if you don't want to sit in a bird-watching hide with your partner for eight hours). The ground floor of the building has a suite of Art and Performance studios with a gallery/exhibition space. Full details are on our website. More extensive catering is provided for guests who are participating in residential courses. It is little surprise that the the house is a popular choice for those with an artistic or literary disposition.
In addition to the facilities that Kirkwall has to offer, we are in easy driving distance of all of Orkney's East and West Mainland. This includes the fabulous Skara Brae, Stenness stones and the Ring of Brodgar. There are many sites for watching birds, seals and other wildlife. Neighbouring islands are accessible via an extensive series of ferries or by air.
