  • Our second stay at Kringla – reminded why we were so keen to come back!  Comfortable, welcoming and perfectly located.  Another brilliant holiday.  Look forward to returning.

    Our second stay at Kringla – reminded why we were so keen to come back!

  • It's really well located for the major sights and every direction the road takes has led to great adventures!  We have been to Skara Brae, with the super beach at Skaill Bay.  We loved the informative 1pm tour @ Ness of Brodgar and wandered the stones @ Stenness too.  The tales of graffiti (Viking) in Maeshowe were fun......too many visits to list all over Mainland & down over the Churchill Barriers.  Lovely to return each evening to such a well equipped, cosy and excellently maintained flat.

    We've had a super stay in Kringla.

  • A lovely place to stay for our week's holiday in Orkney.  Kringla had everything that we needed, and it was nice and warm to come back to after exploring!  Thanks for making us welcome.  We would love to come back and would recommend to our family and friends. :)

    A lovely place to stay!

  • We've had a fabulous week.  Far too many highlights to list here!  Kringla has been an excellent base for exploring and we have felt at home here.  Many thanks Kay.

    Fabulous week!

  • Thank you for another (4th) stay.  A home from home.

  • Our second visit to Kringla.  Now that we have discovered this lovely comfortable, well equipped apartment, centrally located, across the road from the Co-op, near the pub….well, what’s not to like?  Last time we were in Kringla 3 upstairs, which was slightly bigger rooms and possibly lighter with bigger windows – but really not much to choose between apartments. Kay, a splendid host.

  • This was a perfect base from which we headed off in all directions.  The accommodation and facilities at Kringla and in Dounby have been fantastic.  The bulletin each day meant we enjoyed the Birsay Dig, the event in the Library, the country dancing and Accordion and Fiddle Club in Kirkwall.  We arrived in sunshine and had a spectacular sunset.

  • Fantastic Apartments (we took two for a shooting party).  Very comfortable and warm and very well appointed.  Kay was very efficient through the booking process and very helpful during our stay.  Dounby now seems to have all the essentials for daily life without frequent trips to Kirkwall.  Brilliant!

  • Everything was perfect!  Thanks so much………

  • Stayed in many venues for fishing in Orkney, this was without doubt the best, well organised by Kay and the apartment was superb.  Will return in 2017!

  • Kringla has been a wonderful holiday home.  This is our first visit to Orkney and we have enjoyed every minute, there is so much to see that a week is not long enough.  We will most certainly be singing the praises of Orkney and Kringla to our friends.

  • Kringla is one of the best appointed self-catering apartments we have stayed in. Thank you for the lovely holiday and hope to return in the near future.

  • It has been a pleasure to stay in Kringla - the best appointed and thought through place of its kind ever!

  • Searched for 3 days to find something – anything that wasn’t perfect here – and failed.  Kringla just could NOT be better. Thank you.

    Steve and Pauline, 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!
