“Watch This Space”
Reviewed 13 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I had a great time at The Space mixing 6 tracks for the poetry band Little Machine. For clarity of the mix the Neumann speakers really helped to disentangle the mids and for clarity of the spirit there was the view through the beautiful arched windows of the converted kirk to the sea and the isles beyond. Geraldine and Graham have made it a homely place with a
big kitchen to serve up the porridge and a comfy bed for a good night’s sleep. The beach is truly amazing and the exterior grounds will be improved once the old caravan is moved and the boathouse finished. We particularly loved the 1950s railway compartment, good for late night drunken banter as is the sunken firepit, though the Orkney wind makes sitting in one place for long a bit tricky. If you are in an introspective mood there is the tidy cemetery next door and a whole island to explore but if you get tired of splendid isolation the bright lights and rich cultural history of Kirkwall are a short ferry journey away. Either way, it’s an inspiring place and I hope to return with the rest of the band in the Autumn.
