About the place:

The Hoxa Tearooms and Gallery is a family run business overloooking Scapa Flow.  In the Gallery are displayed local photography, crafts and other gifts.  It is one of the best places in Scotland to see Killer Whales and other cetaceans, as well as Basking Sharks in summer.  One of Orkney’s Heritage walks passes within 6 feet of the door. Thanks to Steve Sankey of Orcadian Wildlife for showing us this restaurant.
