  • A lovely comfortable and warm apartment.  Kringla is perfectly situated for many of the best historical sites and of course the bird reserves!  Kay has thought of everything a visitor could possibly need and made us very welcome – thank you.  We hope to come back in the not too distant future and visit some of the other islands as we only went to Hoy this time.  Get to the sites early and you will have them virtually to yourself.

  • Our first time visiting Orkney and your beautiful apartment has made it a memorable one!  Dounby is so central to all the historic landmarks and the locals are welcoming and helpful.  We have enjoyed our stay so much that we are keen to return to your lovely apartment next year too. ? What a special place and seeing the puffins up close and personal was the pinnacle of our visit – Brough of Birsay is the place to go.  Thank you so much Kay for the recommendations of sites to see and places to eat were outstanding.  FIVE STAR RATING!!!

  • We have loved our time in Orkney.  It was great to come back to such a clean, new and comfortable apartment each day.  Thank you for being so helpful.

  • A wonderful place to spend our honeymoon and such a wonderful welcome! We’ve had a fantastic time exploring the prehistoric sites, beachcombing and working on projects.  Thoroughly recommend the excellent steak from the local butchers, also the food at the Merkister Hotel is excellent.  Wish we didn’t have to leave so soon, but hopefully we’ll be back.  Thank you for making our stay so special.

    Sally and Gareth, Mountain Ash, Wales

  • So much to see and so little time.  We’ve had a wonderful time exploring and all of us are keen to return.  The apartment is lovely and well located for many of the pre-historic sites.  The local shops are friendly and the butchers especially good.  The birdlife and flora is exquisite.  Thank you for a very comfortable stay and all the attention to detail that made our visit even better.

  • Kringla 3 fulfilled all our expectations – very comfortable, tasteful and welcoming.  We felt at home here and were sad to leave.  Highly recommended as a centre for the Orkney experience.

    John and Catherine, Linlithgow

  • Such a lovely apartment – lots of room and storage space.  Kay very helpful and she keeps everything so nice and neat and tidy.  We had 2 of our grandchildren visit, who live close by, and they said it is “Epic” and “Awesome”.  How true! We would highly recommend Kringla.

    Mr and Mrs Durkin, Lancashire

  • Apartment is perfect, loads of room and decorated to a high standard.  Kay – you have been fantastic and so helpful.  Hope to see you again very soon!

    Craig and Joanna, Shotts

  • We enjoyed a very pleasant stay thanks to the superb comfort of this lovely apartment.  Well-equipped and furnished in a stylish fashion it provided a good base to explore the mainland and other islands such as Hoy.  Attractions that we enjoyed include Skara Brae, Tomb of the Eagles, the Old Man of Hoy and the island of Papa Westray. Kay was fantastic though out providing advice on places to visit and helping out with any problems.  Thanks so much for making our first visit to Orkney such an enjoyable one and we hope to return to this beautiful place in the near future.

    Andrew and Sam Newton, Somerset

  • What can I say?  What a wonderful, wonderful place! The accommodation is first class!!!  I saw a puffin yesterday for the first time!  It made the holiday!  We will be back, hopefully for a little longer next time.  I will be recommending Kringla 3 to everyone!  It was a pleasure to stay here.  Thank you Kay for making our Orkney stay so very wonderful.

    Kerry and family, Perthshire

  • We’ve had such a great time exploring Orkney.  We’ve been visiting all the sites and the remote corners of the islands.  The apartment is lovely and cosy and we’d come back in a heartbeat – we wish we didn’t have to leave!

    Megan and Brendan, East Kilbride

  • Well this place was a gem of a find!  Such a well-appointed, clean, modern and lovely place- we wanted for nothing more.  Thanks so much for making our stay so brilliant, to match the brilliant weather on an amazing island full of history that blew our minds.

  • We will remember the Orkneys as the friendliest place in the United Kingdom.

    Mike, Jenny and Brett, New Zealand

  • The word that most comes to mind is ‘perfect’.  A lovely home for a restful yet adventurous mid-point vacation.  We loved standing in the Ring of Brodgar, the cliffs at Yesnaby and exploring family heritage.  Thank you!
