Orkney and Shetland Islands Restaurants


Saxa Vord

Saxa Vord Review

This restaurant is part of an odd collection of buildings strewn around the edge of an eye-wateringly—that's the wind—gorgeous peninsula that was a former base for the Royal Air Force. The tidy, well-run, and informal eatery serves lunches and dinners as fresh and good for you as the Unst air. Try local scallops, smoked salmon, and lamb hot pot. You can retire to the bar to chat with the locals and sip a tasty real ale such as Auld Wife or Simmer Dim from the local Valhalla brewery. If you miss the ferry back to the Mainland, they have tidy if basic rooms to rent.
