From Kirkwall or Stromness, take the A965 to Finstown, then the A966 towards Evie and Birsay.  Continue through Norseman Village and take the first right, signposted Gorseness.  Stay on this road for 1 mile and take the first left, signposted Hackland Church.  Drive a further 1 mile until you arrive at a sharp left turn in the road where you will see our red, Old School, mail box and our Yurt on your right.

2020 Covid 19

Due to the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic and the potential for a second wave of infection, we have taken the decision not to offer the Yurt for hire this year.

We will hopefully be able to welcome guests back again from May 2021 when a new normal is established.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope that you will be able to join us in Orkney when restrictions have disappeared.
