~ Welcome to Standing Stones Hotel in Orkney Islands ~
When you stand in the garden of our beautiful Orkney Islands Hotel and take a look across the loch, you stand on the edge of one of the world's most beautiful and unique landscapes. The image of this will stay with you forever and as a hotel, Standing Stones is proud to be a part of this.
Overlooking the Loch of Stenness, Standing Stones is one of the most perfect hotels as a starting point for exploring all of Orkney and what it has to offer. Set back from the main Stromness to Kirkwall road, the views overlooking the loch from our hotel are absolutely stunning, from the midsummer sunsets to winter horizons.
From our hotel's beautiful gardens, you can look across to the Loch of Stenness and see the heart of Neolithic Orkney. Recognising its outstanding universal value and heritage, the principal archaeological sites in the area were inscribed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 1999. Standing Stones Hotel is just eleven miles from Kirkwall and three miles from Stromness, making us the ideal hotel choice with 17 excellent, well-appointed bedrooms, offering you the comfort and service you are looking for whatever the purpose of your visit to Orkney.
Travelling to the Standing Stones Hotel
Journeying to Orkney has never been so simple. Choose between any one of the four ferry services to the islands during the summer months, or a daily flight connection from all the major Scottish cities. With the wide variety of accommodation options, activities, services and facilities on offer too, Orkney is becoming a very popular holiday destination.
Even with its ever increasing amount of visitors, the islands are by no stretch of the imagination 'crowded' and you will often find you have a whole beach or hill to yourself on a leisurely walk or family picnic. The Standing Stones Hotel really is everyone's 'island escape' and why visitors keep returning again and again to discover new things, sampling all the delights Orkney has to offer.
