Read on for what Annie's Place offers you as a guest!

Annie's Place is a ground floor level apartment within the former St Magnus Kirk Manse, built in 1761. We are on a private lane in the peaceful, historic village of Palace, Birsay, on Orkney's West Mainland; an ideal location for a relaxing holiday but with plenty to see and do.

You can walk directly from the doorstep along dramatic coastlines, paddle in the sea, fish, cycle, or travel to view all that Orkney's scenery, history, and wild life have to offer.

Our bench on the shoreline of Birsay Bay is perfect for watching amazing sea views, wonderful sunsets and, if you are lucky, the Aurora! You can watch for seals, and a myriad of seabirds! The tidal island called the Brough of Birsay is a short stroll along the coast.

There is also the convenience of the adjacent Palace Stores, JP Orkney's Honesty Box and the Birsay Bay Tearoom is just up the road.

The two bedroom apartment is suitable for guests of all ages, meets modern standards, and is regularly re-decorated and upgraded with quality bedding and furniture. Free parking is available

The cost of £595-£630 per week (depending on time of year) is fully inclusive. As you are booking directly with us, there are no additional agency fees that you have to pay.

We also welcome small to medium sized dogs, with a small charge of £30 to cover additional steam cleaning costs.

We have been awarded a Short-Term Lets Licence (OR00014F) by Orkney Island Council so you can book now or into the future with assurance that all health and safety requirements are being met in Annie's Place.
