Woodwick Mill

Opened 2010, Highly Commended by Orkney Heritage Society for "building excellence in Orkney"

Woodwick Mill has been renovated to provide superior self-catering accommodation in a beautiful burnside setting. The environment is quiet and serene with ducks, trout, grey wagtails and the relaxing sound of Woodwick Burn babbling over the flagstone bedrock. The accommodation is finished to an excellent and well-equipped standard. The eco-friendly building is highly insulated and warmed by heat pump with solar panels providing hot water. Each apartment has a Spa Bath, separate shower, fridge, freezer, cooker, microwave and Jamie Oliver tableware. There are superb views over the surrounding countryside and neighbouring islands. All double beds are King sized. With ample parking the Mill is 20 minutes’ drive from each of the two main towns, Kirkwall and Stromness.

The self-catering accommodation is suitable for gatherings with each group or family having a separate apartment.

The mill dam has been repaired and a fish ladder added to enable trout to reach the upper reaches of Woodwick Burn. The objective has been to restore the natural environment of the Woodwick valley for the enjoyment of guests. As the public road is at some distance the magical tranquility is not disturbed by traffic noise.

Nearby archaeological sites include the Broch of Gurness, Midhowe Broch, Skara Brae, Maeshowe, Standing Stones of Stenness, Ness of Brodgar (as featured on the recent Neil Oliver programme ) and Ring of Brodgar.
