Orkney: Yvonne Harrold and Brinkies guest house

During our five day stay on Orkney we stayed at Brinkies Guest House above Stromness, which is run by Yvonne Harrold. We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay and were very well looked after by the welcoming and enthusiastic Yvonne. Breakfast consisted of a wide range of Orkney products including salmon, herring and cheeses plus Yvonne's fine home baking. 

We would certainly go back.
