£30 - £35 per person per night
£60 - £80 per room per night
This is home to Jerry Wood’s B&B, providing quality Bed and Breakfast accommodation on the island of Westray in Orkney’s Northern Isles.
No. 1 Broughton stands at the water’s edge looking across the sweep of Pierowall Bay and out across to Papa Westray. Across the bay creel boats and other sea traffic set out and return to Gill Pier – and from there you can take a day trip to Papay (Papa Westray).
This old Orkney house (c.1850) has undergone a complete renovation and now offers quality accommodation for visitors: 2 double rooms and one twin, all en-suite. In addition ‘family’ accommodation is available by the provision of an extra single bed or cot in the room. All rooms have tea/coffee-making facilities and TV/video.
Guests are welcome to use the breakfast/sitting room and conservatory with their garden and sea views, and for an extra charge, the use of our sauna is available. What better way to round off a day’s beachcombing among the birds and seals than to relax in the warmth of a sauna – and then sit in the conservatory to watch the sun go down over the bay! On rainy days a selection of DVDs, videos, jigsaws and board games is available on request. We can offer packed lunches and will do our best to cater for any special dietary needs.
Jerry’s artwork is on display throughout the house. Prints, paintings and postcards can be purchased. A selection of the works available can be viewed at Jerry’s Studio Art courses and workshops sometimes available, please contact for details.

Within ten minutes walk around the bay you come to all the amenities of Westray life – the shops, the bank, swimming pool, Heritage Centre, Gallery and Pierowall Hotel. A little further out of Pierowall is sixteenth-century Noltland Castle and from there it is a short way to one of Westray’s best beaches at Grobust.
For the birdwatcher, a trip to the cliffs of Noup Head and Castle o’Burrian offers a wealth of seabirds such as fulmars, kittiwakes, puffins, skuas, gannets, razorbills and the guillemots or “aaks” – a local name for the inhabitants of Westray.
For the walker, the Westside Walk is a bracing three and a half hour cliff top walk up to Noup Head lighthouse and there are many other gentler walks around the island.
Westray is well-known for its arts and crafts – so why not follow The Craft Trail, from jewellery to knitwear to painting and pottery – there are many workshops to visit.
