The road is the main road into the island from St Margaret’s Hope and the mainland ferry service. It occupies a pleasant and elevated position above the town yet within easy reach of all amenities. Kirkwall is the capital of the Orkney Islands and subsequently acts as the commercial and administrative center. The settlement offers typical business, recreational and educational facilities and is also a lively location for retail and leisure activities. One of the town’s most attractive features is its rich and diverse history and a number of impressive buildings including the sandstone St Magnus Cathedral are features of the town. The presence of a busy harbour and airport mark Kirkwall as the arrival point for ferries from Shetland and Aberdeen as well as cruise ships and ferries connecting the other islands in the archipelago. Combined with flights to the UK mainland it all ensures there is healthy demand for accommodation in Kirkwall and the surrounding area.
The Bon Accord is a family run bed and breakfast offering professional, clean and reasonably priced guest house accommodation in the heart of Orkney. The location of the business ensures that not only does it provide guests with a convenient position close to the centre of Kirkwall it also offers an ideal central point on the mainland to explore the abundant attractions available both nearby and further afield. Given the remote nature of Orkney and the vast array of scenery, wildlife and local attractions to enjoy guests typically stay for a lengthy duration. Consequently the business benefits from the very strong demand for accommodation especially throughout the summer season and with Kirkwall acting as a travel hub the constant stream of visitors and activity in the town allows occupancy levels to remain strong. The business also benefits from its close proximity to the main hospital with guest staying to visit patients there. In addition there is considerable building works taking place on the island and there is a general shortage of accommodation for contractors. The business trades at 3* level and the current owners through their attentive and sociable nature have built up a superb reputation.
