Jon and Maria look forward to welcoming you to their B&B on the beautiful island of Sanday.

Braeswick B&B provides comfort, relaxation, stunning views and a friendly atmosphere at the south end of the Sanday. We are situated just 2 miles from the ferry terminal and 5 miles from the airport. Sanday is an island of beautiful beaches and dramatic coastlines. There is a fantastic natural arch and beach just over a mile from the B&B and some more natural arches 4 miles away. There is plenty of wildlife on Sandy and you can often enjoy breakfast while watching the seals in the bay. During the summer months, keep an eye out for our regular visiting short-eared owls. See our Facebook or Instagram pages, for an insight into what can be seen on the island.
During the dark nights of winter you can experience skies without light pollution and there is also a chance that the Aurora Borealis/northern lights will be visible. We track when the northern lights are visible so can help you maximise your chances of seeing them. The guest longue is also north facing so a perfect place to stay warm while watching for them.
From late October the Grey seals start to pup and November is a particularly good time to see them.
Braeswick B&B offers high standards of accommodation. One room is a twin or super-king, as you prefer and has a sea view. The other two rooms are doubles. Breakfast is included and there are various options including a “Full Orkney” or Orkney Kippers! We can cater for your evening meals with our extensive menu and can also supply you with a packed lunch.
All rooms have:
  • Private en-suite bathroom
  • Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and hand soap
  • Towels
  • Hairdryer
  • TV
  • Alarm clock
  • Tea and coffee making facilities
There is also a freshly ground coffee machine which you can use free of charge at all times.
We have a beautiful guest lounge with stunning sea views and use of a telescope to help with your wildlife spotting. From the B&B you can see Braes Wick, Pool Bay, the Calf of Eday, Papa Westray and the Holmes of Ire.
