Skerryvore is a five hundred year old 3 storied town house in the centre of Kirkwall.
There are 2 large rooms with en-suite facilities on the 1st floor with a double and single bed and a sitting area to relax in. The Scott Room, where Walter Scott wrote 'The Pirate' overlooks the Town Centre and Cathedral, while the Garden Room, surprise, surprise looks out over the garden.
There is a private area for parking at the rear.
Being central, Skerryvore B&B is close to shops, cafes, restaurants, bar and hotels. Ideal for local sightseeing, within walking distance of St Magnus Cathedral and Centre - see the film in the Centre and then visit the Catherdral (St Magnus Cathedral tour times ) , Orkney Museum, Earls & Bishops Palaces Kirkwall and the harbour where you can catch the ferry to Orkney's North Isles (see Orkney Ferries for timetables). Its a grand base to dander through the town (watch out for the traffic!)
For the more energetic, there's the The Pickaquoy Centre with lots to keep fit. Facilities include squash and swimming and theres also the cinema. Of course theres the Golf Course and Bowling / putting at Brandyquoy Park.
The Kirkwall Travel Centre is a short walk away with bus links to mainland Orkney's World Heritage (such as Skara Brae, Maeshowe, Ring of Brodgar and Standing Stones of Stenness ), towns, villages and beautiful countryside.
Orkney is far more than just Kirkwall.
