The Grainstore offers guests a choice: you can opt for EITHER Self Catering OR Bed & Breakfast. It consists of a small suite of rooms having one bedroom/ studio room and designed for one party of guests, maximum 2 adults +1 child at a time.
This 'small but perfectly formed' suite is situated in a private self contained wing at the back of our home - a 150 year old farm house, which is situated in the heart of West Mainland, Orkney. As well as being provided with high standard accommodation, guests staying with us not only have their own private garden area, but they can also share the rest of the garden with us including - new in 2018 our 'flying' viewing platform, giving stunning uninterrupted views down to the inland Lochs of West Mainland. NEW for 2019 'The Writing Room'. A large log cabin/summer house with log burner & comfy furniture. A lovely place to while away the hours come rain or shine and relax!
The Grainstore is ideally located for guests to explore and 'Experience Orkney' with all its wonderful facets. We are near Harray Loch and the World Heritage Neolithic sites, popular with visitors: Skara Brae, Ring of Brodgar, Maeshowe, Standing Stones of Stenness and Ness of Brodgar .
Corrigall Farm Museum is next door to the property, a traditional ‘but and ben’ house that portrays a typical Orkney farmhouse and steading in the late 19th century.

Although The Grainstore is available with a Bed & Breakfast option ( 4 Star rated Visit Scotland ), we introduced the Self Catering option as many of our Bed & Breakfast guests in our first year said it had all the facilities for Self Catering and although 'bijou' was ideal for 1 or 2 adults. So the last 2 seasons we have been available for self catering & this option has proved very popular. We also offer Self Catering with serviced accommodation and again rated 4 Stars by Visit Scotland.
