This is extraordinary. You can actually choose a route to avoid unnecessary hills. Excellent for the part-time cyclist!

Really good store for bike rental. The propriators are really nice, we had a flat and when they came to switch the bike they gave a ride back to the lazy guy in our group.

Kept hold of our bikes whilst we visited the town and then bought some lights from the shop. Great customer service and shop has reasonable prices. Thank you

The Orcadian Bookshop

50 Albert St, Kirkwall KW15 1HQ, UK – 01856 878000

I was hoping there would be a good bookshop in Kirkwall and I was not disappointed. The shop is quite large and you can take your time to peruse the books, maps that they sell. I bought two books one to encourage me to get out walking next time I visit. The other was to do with Scapa Flow and the brave who lost their lives during the war.

Well stocked "proper" bookshop. They had the maps we sought, also. Excellent

Extremely helpful. Staff very friendly and courteous. Would recommend. I was only there for a day and from pick up to drop off it was perfect. The car was very clean and tidy.

Despite the fact that I gave them the wrong date they managed to find out when I would arrive and had a car for me. Friendly, efficient helped make our visit to the island perfect
