Straigona is a purpose built Bed and Breakfast (B&B) located in Tankerness with stunning views over fields to Inganess Bay and the island of Shapinsay.  It enjoys the best of both worlds, being semi-rural but only minutes away from the airport and Kirkwall. 

For keen walkers there are even good walks on the doorstep, one of which takes in Inganess Bay.  It is possible to reach many of Orkney’s top attractions easily from Straigona.

Ample parking is provided for guests at the front of the house.  Straigona is set in a large garden with its own ‘standing stone’ taking centre stage!  Plenty of room to stroll around or sit and admire the view or for children to run off excess energy.

Straigona B&B is perfect for touring ‘Mainland’ Orkney.  Kirkwall is only 5 miles away and Stromness is 20 miles away.

Please note that in line with present Scottish legislation smoking is not permitted within Straigona.  Smokers are welcome and are able to indulge under the covered porch in inclement weather, we do ask that you dispose of cigarette butts in the bin provided.

We regret we are unable to accept pets as we have our own cat to consider.

A selection of fiction, Orkney books, local maps, binoculars and various visitor information is provided on the bookcase just outside the dining room, plus a computer is available in the hall for guests use.

To check availability and make a booking please contact Julie or Mike by phone, email at or send an enquiry directly from this website.
