132 Years of Work

The Belsair Hotel at Kettletoft, Sanday, is for sale. Details will be posted here when available, but the business - a hotel, bar and post office - has a fascinating history. The post and telegraph office was started by Kenneth Hay in 1881 and remained in his family until 2003. That's a span of 132 years and included the time when it was a manual exchange handling all calls from the Northern Isles of Orkney. Look back here for more insights into a business with a long pedigree.
