Carer Bespoke Orkney Island Breaks
Lying in the confluence of two great oceans, these North Atlantic Islands are renowned for their sunrises & sunsets, wild life, sandy beaches & magnificent seascapes. Combine the natural beauty of Orkney’s ancient landscape with the superb rural setting of Via House.
Orkney offers visitors of all ages first class amenities, so you can choose to be as active or as peaceful as you wish.
At Via House we provide the opportunity for individuals and small groups of carers to relax. In the evenings sit & read by the peatfire in Via House library, enjoy an evening of Island Peatfire Tales & Music or book a table at a nearby restaurant & taste the local Orkney fayre. During the day, follow the Island Craft Trails, explore Orkney’s ancient sites, enjoy a Tai Chi session with Lynn or visit the historic capital, Kirkwall.
Take a well deserved Island Break & escape to Via House.
