Ayre of Cara is a family run Bed and Breakfast, situated on the beautiful Isle of South Ronaldsay.

Ayre of Cara has been accredited as "Good to go" and will be open from the beginning of August until the end of October, but we'll be stipulating a minimum stay of three nights on any new booking due to the extra work now needed on changeovers

We shall only be using the two en-suite doubles TFN to take account of social distancing.

We shan't have a guest lounge available this year either, again due to extra cleaning protocols.

The minutiae will go out to guests with confirmation emails.

We are easily found right beside the fourth Churchill Barrier with superb unbroken views over Scapa Flow towards the Hoy Hills.

Whether you are staying for one night before catching the ferry, or for an extended break, you can be sure of a very warm welcome. The ferry port is only 5 minutes down the road.

Throughout your stay you can enjoy high quality accommodation in a friendly, welcoming environment.

You will also have access to our expansive garden with sea walls, and our relaxing resident's lounge which is equipped with an extensive collection of books, perfect for unwinding with after a long day exploring the beautiful islands.

To set you up for the day ahead, we provide a comprehensive, tasty hot and cold breakfast menu, ranging from a full Scottish breakfast, to lighter fruit and cereal options.

We also offer a packed-lunch option, so you have everything you need whilst exploring the many attractions, sites and wildlife across the Islands.

We hope to welcome you to Ayre of Cara very soon.
