Warm, cosy, welcoming and in a beautiful location, are the comments of recent guests staying in Annie's Place over the winter period. The weather has been variable: unseasonably warm one week; powerful winds and pounding waves the next! But whatever the weather brings, all our guests comment that there is always plenty to see and do, even if that is just enjoying Orkney's peace and calm. The photos below show views of Birsay Bay in all its glory taken throughout the year, from Annie's Place shoreline.  There are also photos of Annie's Place cosy rooms.
