Note that under Scottish law reservations – even those made by verbal agreement – are binding. Intending guests are advised to take out travel insurance to cover all eventualities such as illness, bereavement or adverse weather affecting your holidays. Remember, Orkney is an island, ferries and flights can be delayed or cancelled at short notice. If weather is really bad ferries have been known to turn back mid-crossing (although this is extremely rare)

Bookings cancelled fewer than 30 days before arrival then the deposit – the full cost of the first night – will be forfeited.

Bookings cancelled fewer than 10 days before arrival. A charge equal to the full booking amount will be made.

If, due to unforeseen circumstances, Carlin Skerry cannot fulfil a booking guests affected would be contacted as soon as possible and we would make every effort to find alternative accommodation on the island.
