TURRIEDALE is fully available for 2024. We very much look forward to welcoming you here as previous Orkneycrofts guests or as new customers in 2024. Dogs are welcome.

Orkney is a very beautiful place. Our vision has always been to create an environment which is almost as beautiful, so when you return from a great day out you can relax to the uppermost . 

bestork29.jpgTurriedale, (Sleeps 4), offers classic farmhouse familiarity and good country style. If you are looking for beautiful and authentic self-catering accommodation, and if you want to combine beauty with great convenience offered by the most accessible central location in the West Mainland of Orkney, then you have found what you are looking for.


The croft is furnished with restored period local furniture and antiques. Work by both local and and Scottish artists and ceramics decorate the walls and surfaces. Turriedale is a genuine home, far more than just a convenient base for your Orkney Holiday.

We are also very pleased to have been Gold Award winners for environmental management as members of Green Tourism (GTBS) from 2009-19. We continue to maintain those environmental standards though following Covid we have withdrawn from all ratings organisations. as the business has streamlined.
