We had a lovely stay in your house. It was very nice decorated. From the room we saw a seal liing in the sun. Orkney is a nice island.

Management response:

Thank you for your review. I am glad you got to see a seal. There are loads there are the moment having their pups

Teresa's place was perfect for us - comfortable, clean, convenient and spacious. The location was super: a block from a play park for the kids, halfway between St. Margaret's Hope and Kirkwall. The view was really dramatic -and the rainbow across the Flow was ample payoff for a little rain! Teresa gave us some tips to find sandy beaches- there...

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely review

We really enjoyed our stay at Glenduron, a lovely 2 bedroom cottage. The cottage is well equipped, comfortable and very clean. It has a sea front location with beautiful views of the scapa flow. Short drive to the Italian Chapel and into Kirkwall- wouldn't hesitate to recommend or return.

Management response:

Thank you Kate, perfect review Regards Teresa
