Around and About

The peaceful location provides many opportunities for birdwatching, beach and cliff walking. Last year we had oystercatchers, lapwings, curlews, blackbirds, starlings, larks, meadow pippits and crows all nesting on our property. There are books, brochures, leaflets and recommendations from previous guests to help you plan the holiday you want while based at West Shaird.


From Stromness drive to Kirkwall and follow signs for South Ronaldsay/Burwick (A961). From St. Margaret's Hope/Gills Bay ferry take the A961, then turn right to Burwick. Follow this road passing garage and take the next right (sign posted Sandwick). The single track road heads towards the bay then turns sharply uphill. You will see West Shaird straight ahead on your right.
