Brecks Blog

From time to time we would like to share articles about the flora and fauna at and around Brecks, which we hope you will enjoy.

A taste of the Ba!

The Kirkwall Ba' is a 700 year old ball game unique to Orkney that takes place on Christmas Day and New Year's Day every year. View our video to find out more and if you want to experience this event up close book your stay at Brecks today.

First Corncrake of the season!

The first Corncrake heard calling this year in Orkney was heard in one of our fields on a unit nearby Brecks!  Though we have a couple of fields managed to encourage Corncrakes, he has actually taken up residence in another field that is managed for waders!



The Owls have been enjoying the recent fine spell of weather often being seen hunting in the field next to the Barn.
