The Royal Hotel Longhope, Orkney
Built in 1910 in Longhope, South Walls, a small island connected to North Walls and Hoy by a causeway. The village of Longhope straggles along the shore of the sheltered anchorage, known as Longhope and North Bay, which forms part of Scapa Flow. The focus of the village is the harbour, above which the hotel is situated, enjoying stunning views overlooking the waters of Longhope Bay and surrounding hills. This well maintained hotel is a distinctive and historical local landmark, illustrative of the influence of the prominent Arts and Crafts architect, W R Lethaby, including high chimney stacks with their deep tapered coping, crowstepped gables and deep overhanging eaves, which are very much in his style, as are the lower height 1st floor windows along the eaves.
In the past the Royal Hotel has hosted three former Kings, George V, Edward VIII and George VI.
