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.

2021 Covid 19

Due to the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic and the current national lockdown, we have taken the decision to delay erecting the Yurt this year.

We will review the situation and decide whether and when to offer the Yurt for rent when some clarity emerges.

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