Visitors to Orkney are increasingly choosing to book a self catering holiday in the off-season weeks, especially when holidays earlier this year were not possible due to Covid19 lockdown. The week of October 3rd is still available, as are the weeks of November and into the new year!  Temperatures may be cooler and the wind can be brisk, but coastal scenery is spectacular at any time of the year. Book a short break, or a longer stay at Annie's Place, and enjoy all that this time of year has to offer! 

Just now the skies above Birsay Bay are dramatic and exciting:

These photos will hopefully tempt you to come and enjoy an autumn break this year...or next! At Annie's Place on Birsay Bay you can always be sure of a warm welcome  and a cosy and comfortable holiday even in these challenging Covid19 times!!
