|Situated in the heart of the west Mainland, near to the lochs of Harray and Stenness, we are close to the World Heritage neolithic sites.
We are on the main road from Birsay to Finstown, on a bus route, conveniently close to both Kirkwall (12 miles) and Stromness (10 miles).
With the Merkister Hotel only 2 miles and the Smithfield Arms 3 miles away you do not have to go far for a relaxing drink or a meal. Fishermen can take advantage of the hire boats available at the Merkister Hotel which is situated on the shore of Loch Harray.
Harray Stores (general store and off-licence), 1 mile away, serves lunches and high teas and also has fuel pumps. Dounby, 4 miles away, has a Co-op (with fuel pumps), a hairdressers and a post office.
At present we have one twin room available on the ground floor. We are in the process of converting two further rooms on the first floor. This will not cause any inconvenience.
Breakfast is served in our separate dining room/lounge. You can relax in the room at any time in comfy chairs and read from our selection of books. There is also a selection of DVDs to watch in your room.
Guests have the use of the garden with table and chairs.
Parking is available, off road, at the side of the house.
HammerSmith is a no-smoking establishment
Unfortunately we are not able to take pets, as we have a dog ourselves (Lottie)
