The Storehouse - Orcadian Food Art and Style
Many of the materials in our rooms have been recycled from this historic B Listed building which was built originally as a Pork and Herring Curing Station which was also known as a salt store where the locals collected salt for curing their fish and meat. Our first floor rooms have their original wooden posts in situ, which are believed to be recycled from tall mast sailing ships which were wrecked on Orkney shores around 1880. There also runs a massive long beam the full length of the buiding on the first foor andwe also have feature detailing such as wooden shutters and woodwork re-cycled from the original timber boards , flag stone sills - these stones originally laid on what was a courtyard for the horses and carts to come through the open arches on the ground floor where our restaurant and bar is now.
Each room has its own Orcadian name and character and original paintings hang in each bedroom painted by Judiths sister Jane Glue who is a well known local watercolour artist. Jane also took the black and white photos which hang on the first floor and were taken before any work was started to the building when it was in its original state. In the restaurant you will also see old Ink bottles, artifacts and books left from when The Storehouse was used as a printers in the mid 20th Century.
On the end wall is a mural of the Orkney Norn dialect taken from original pages of the Orkney Norn book which were left in the building before work begun.
All our en suite bathrooms have underfloor heating , spacious walk-in rainfall showers and our four superior rooms have double ended baths with large waterfall showers and on the top floor the bedrooms have remote controlled velux windows.
