I really don't know why Buxa Farm Chalets aren't 5 star: a spacious, spotlessly clean, comfortable holiday cottage with stunning views and absolutely everything that you might need.
The cottages are set in open land looking out over Scapa Flow to the islands of Graemsay and Hoy. There's a path to the sea and the fields are full of birds and hares. Even the choice of books on the shelves was thoughtful; I really enjoyed reading the George Mackay Brown novel, Vinland, looking out over the landscape he describes.
If we get back to Orkney we are definitely staying here again. Plus
