For a peaceful overnight stay on Kirkwall's historic waterfront, take a room at The Shore.

We are delighted to be back open following the coronavirus shutdown. We are currently operating on a bed and breakfast basis with our popular restaurant service temporarily suspended. Our bar service will be available in the evenings to residents only so that we can provide a safe and comfortable space for those occupying rooms in the first instance. We will be partnering with other local businesses to encourage eating out and to support those bars which are open.

For now, we look forward to welcoming overnight guests in our clean and comfortable rooms while providing a complimentary continental breakfast to start your day. Please book direct through our website for the best available rates.
