The Mill of Eyrland is a beautifully converted water mill that has been tastefully restored and furnished. It is set in an idyllic location with incredible views overlooking Scapa Flow and the majestic island of Hoy, and is surrounded by a lovely garden and a mill burn.
The Mill is set in a superb central Orkney Mainland location within two miles of the World Heritage Area. Guests can easily drive to the historic and picturesque town of Stromness in less than 5 minutes, or go through to Orkney’s capital, Kirkwall, that houses Britain’s most northerly cathedral, the St Magnus Cathedral. Many of Orkney’s archaeology sites such as the Ring of Brodgar, Maeshowe and Skara Brae can be easily accessed from this location.
The Mill of Eyrland includes three bedrooms, all with en-suites, and a family suite. These are:
- The Master Bedroom, Mill Burn, which includes a king-sized four poster bed and sleeps up to two people.
- The Malting Floor includes a king-sized and a single bed and sleeps up to three people.

The two bedrooms of the Hopper Suite share a bathroom fitted with a bath and separate shower which is entered off the private corridor. This family suite sleeps up to five people.
The Mill’s history is fascinating and ranges back to the 1860’s with many parts of the old mill still visible. It remained a working mill until the mid-1960’s with a number of millers maintaining it throughout the decades. To find out more about the mill’s history, visit the website.
