Accommodation in the heart of Orkney

With peace and tranquility that can only be experienced with a holiday in the islands, Sebay Mill is the ideal place for visitors seeking the true Orkney in our world-class self-catering accommodation.

Situated just ten minutes from the main town of Kirkwall, Sebay Mill once was responsible for grinding all the grain for the community, but over a period of time it was left to ruin. After three years of careful restoration, the mill is now fully restored, creating six luxury 5-Star Orkney self-catering apartments. Visitors can now enjoy the best of Orkney from their luxury base which offers a great location and unbeatable views of rural Orkney.
