Kirkwall holiday accommodation in B&B

  • Kirkwall Latitude: 58.984674 Longitude: -2.962249
  • Kirkwall: KW15
  • Kirkwall: WOEID 25462

Kirkwall stands on the northern end of the Kirkwall-Scapa isthmus which divides Mainland into eastern and western parts. 
The town dominated by its splendid 800 year old cathedral spreads up the hillside from the harbour. 
Historically Kirkwall has been the main island centre since it was a Norse trading centre and today it combines its role of capital with that of shopping and business centre. When visiting the island B&B is one of the best solutions for your holiday base with its flexibility travelling from one B&B to another, but Kirkwall also offers Hotels, Guest Houses and Self Catering as well as B&B accommodation.

Notable events include the Christmas and New Years Day Ba' Games when the Uppies play the Downies, symbolizing the ancient rivalry between the bishop's ecclesiastical town and the secular authority represented by the now vanished castle.
