Richard & Jane could not be more welcoming. On our arrival, they both greeted us at the front door and show us around their lovely home. It was cosy, clean and tidy. Our room was equally as good, Very spacious, clean and inviting. The bathroom was especially nice and had an array of bath treats for us to enjoy. Once settled in our room we were made coffee with a side of homemade shortbread & banana and walnut cake. (Which were really tasty). We were provided with a folder covering anything we could possibly need from wifi to local amenities. There was a good selection of breakfast options to choose from including vegetarian. The hosts couldn’t do enough for us throughout the duration of our stay.

One night NC500 stay
Clean comfortable homely stay for one night. I stay away often and wasn’t expecting great things when I booked this, but I was completely wrong. The venue was clean, tidy, quiet and comfortable. Jane could not have been more accommodating and the breakfast was great as well. Would return in a heartbeat.

Wonderful family B&B
We had a great one night stay at the Aurona B&B before our trip to Orkney. Jane & Richard were incredibly welcoming and helpful: Jane even booked as a table at a local restaurant! The room was large with a spacious en-suite bathroom, and the breakfast was substantial and delicious. My youngest particularly enjoyed the two dogs and the demonstration of the small steam engine! We can't recommend this place highly enough. Thanks The Powell family
