Please note that on re-opening we will initially be providing rooms and continental breakfast only.

At The Shore we focus on providing comfortable rooms, a full breakfast and elegant evening dining, whether for business or holiday stays, in the heart of the town, on Kirkwall's Shore Street, overlooking the harbour and marina.

We offer double, twin or single rooms and loft suites. All have en-suite shower rooms. The premier rooms are larger with bright front facing windows and can be used as family rooms when required as they have ample space for a fold down bed or cot. The larger loft suite with two rooms sharing a bathroom is well suited to those looking for a little more space.
