If you are visiting the Orkney Islands world heritage site or the abundance of archaeological sites that brings thousands of visitors over ever year, then you will be looking for a suitable place to stay that offers you cheap accommodation on the Orkney Islands. The Pomona Guest House situated in Kirkwall, the Orkney Islands capital city, is a B&B that offers a comfy and well-equipped place to relax and unwind after all your busy days of exploring all of the arachnological areas that paint a vivid picture of the Islands Neolithic past.
Our B&B is in the centre of Kirkwall, and within easy reach of the inter-island ferry transport facilities that are available on the Island, from the harbour in Kirkwall. This makes it the ideal location to stay, to allow you easy access to, not only our fully adequate and regular transportation services, but to access the pubs, restaurants and entertainment from all around the city, that Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands has to offer.
In the summer months, you can visit and explore many archaeological sites, some of which are still under excavation. For example, the Ness of Brodgar has been deemed the greatest Neolithic find of the modern era and has a viewing platform for visitors to watch the progress of buildings that are said to have been in use, some 5,000 years ago. Every year, groups of volunteers come to help with the dig and they believe they still all have much work to do to uncover the entire archaeological site.
This is by no means the first Neolithic archaeological dig to be found on the Orkney Islands. In 1850, Scara Brea was discovered and is now Europe’s most completed uncovered Neolithic village. It is no wonder then that it draws thousands of tourists every year to the Orkney Islands. If you stay at our cheap B&B in the Orkney Islands it will take you just over half an hour to travel to the Bay of Skaill situated on the west coast of the Orkney Islands Mainland, where you will find this world heritage site.
Of course, the Orkney Islands have a lot of other things to offer the tourist and traveller, and our staff in our B&B in the Orkney Islands would be happy to answer any of your questions should you need more information on the facilities available, in order to find all the Orkney Islands has to offer. In fact, the Orkney Islands tourist information centre is within a 5-minute walk from our cheap B&B accommodation.
Another Historic site of interest, and just a 16-minute walk away from our cheap B&B on the Orkney islands, is called Grain Earth house. This is a very well-preserved earth house from the iron ages. When you enter, there is a 5-metre-long passage that winds its way into a round larger oval room and underground chamber.
So, if you are looking for the best cheap B&B Orkney Islands has to offer, then look no further than the Pomona Guest house in Kirkwall. Contact us today.
