Orkadale, Mounthoolie Lane

Orkadale, Mounthoolie Lane in Kirkwall.

I see by the sign on the wall it has renamed Orcadale, it was always Orkadale as far as I remember.

I used to come and stay with my grandparents in this house in the early 1980's, I think he planed that tree in the picture from a seedling.

It was very handy, I remember getting dinners put over from the hotel kitchen on hot plates, saved a lot of cooking.

When we were kids we would have great laughs from the third floor gable end window watching drunk folk stagger about after Albert dances.

Does anyone know the history of this house?
