Castlehill, Orkney

..... is a family home where we enjoy hosting guests from all over the world . 

In a lovely location a little off the beaten track, with home comforts, good food , great company and a lot of laughs, you can relax and be a bit spoiled.

Having had had a long career in the NHS, Denise started running the B&B in 2016.

Castlehill is very much Jim and Denise's home , returning guests are very happy to take a wee dram and mull over fond memories of Jim's passions for cooking, wine , whisky, fishing and photography. 

Her ambition is to continue to develop a productive garden , on what are very poor ground conditions , being inches from the bedrock and rarely dry . Some day chickens will come to roost ... but all in good time 

Castlehill has an extensive collection of books and reference material including Scottish history, Archaeology and Orkney subjects in particular . With an extensive network of friends and communites of interest, Denise can help you to decide how to make the most of your stay in Orkney.

 

We have a good supply of local maps, binoculars and if you are not suficiently prepared for the changing weather , a good collection of hats, scarves and warm coats you can borrow.

 

 

 


Green Tourism - our position

At Castlehill, waste is kept to a minimum, we reuse and recycle as much as possible, planning to be more earth-friendly over time.

Castlehill's oil & electricity consumption has been reduced by having solar panels installed, a more efficient heating system and upgraded doubleglazing. 

Food is sourced locally, as far as possible & with the least impact on food miles. 

A walled garden is being established to provide some home grown produce. 

Green Tourism is a slogan adopted by some national tourism organisations in the UK. This is our current position and does not depict the views or aspirations of any other person or organisation. We make no claim to be "just green", "really green" or reflect a more polarised perspective on green issues.
