59 Degrees North is looking for cafe staff for 2022.
The position starts mid-April until the end of September so potentially works well for someone with some winter adventures in mind. We are looking for someone that has some catering AND customer service experience.
Initially it will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday with Wednesdays over the school holiday period as well.
We are a small family business where everyone gets stuck in. Days will be long and hard work but also rewarding, funny, interesting and different too. It will involve weekend work and possibly the odd evening as well.
Day to day responsibilities will include dealing with customers, coffee & drink making, keeping the café in good order, helping with baking, putting up with Jon’s instructions & food prep.
We are looking for someone who is over 18 and is available in the term time as well as the holidays. A sense of humour and a massive interest in good home cooked food is essential as is the ability to smile your way through any situation.
Wage dependent on experience.
Please get in touch if you are interested or spread the word to anyone you think who may be good for the role!

Jackie & Malcolm for getting stuff here and for the hours of advice
Kieron for all your words of encouragement and advice
The local shops for keeping this little island so well catered for Sinclair General Stores Sanday & Sanday Community Shop

To the Deerness family for ploughing & mowing
To our amazing neighbours for being so lovely
TO HIS Orkney & Buildbase Orkney for getting the materials here

Have a wonderful Christmas and well deserved break. ... See MoreSee Less
Today marks the first day of winter and the winter solstice where the Earth’s poles reach the maximum tilt away from the sun. The winter solstice is the day with the shortest period of daylight, 6 hours and 7 minutes is all we get here in Sanday today. So that means summer is on her way!

We got 7 hours 5 mins but I wouldn't change it. X
That's the last piece of the puzzle ordered for the new year. We are so pleased to have found a local coffee roaster The Orkney Roastery to look after all our requirements and even make our own blend coffee!

We made some rather delicious pizzas last night during our training. We got the oven temperature perfect and the speckled crusts were spot on. My favourite was this spicy salami and chilli oil 🌶 closely followed by the garlic butter and fresh parsley garlic bread. ... See MoreSee Less
Do you do delivery?!! 🤣🤣🤣
I’ve been printing for this customer for 19 years! It’s great to be able to continue working with my long standing customers, even from Orkney!

With just a few days until the winter solstice, Orkney is lit with a weak, grey light as the sun barely reaches a midday altitude of ten degrees. What sunshine there is, is dependent on the cloud cover at the time, which can often make for days of near darkness.
The winter solstice takes place around 22nd December and is the time in the year when the sun is farthest south. Here in Sanday, the sun begins to rise at approximately 9.07am but it is often nearer 10am before it is high enough to be seen above the surrounding hills. From there, it makes its way across the sky, barely above the horizon, before setting again at 3.17pm. At midwinter we are treated to a total of about six hours of weak sunlight! ... See MoreSee Less
We’re all setup ready at the Christmas fayre ... See MoreSee Less
*** TESTING ONLY ***
The dough is proving nicely and the fire is lit, we’re testing only tonight, got to perfect it all before we release pizzas out into the wild! ... See MoreSee Less
Are you going to eat them all 😳
Fire in the hole! We have a flue, so just had to light a little fire to test it out. Very happy to report its working perfectly, thanks to Timber doors/floors and plastering services ... See MoreSee Less
Don’t waste it, chuck a pizza in there 😂
Having a print studio comes in rather handy, the boring fridges needed a touch of jazzing up! ... See MoreSee Less
It looked like a UFO was coming in to land this morning, it didn’t, so I’m guessing it was blown off course 💨 🌞 🛸 🚀 ... See MoreSee Less

It’s been snowing and sleeting on and off since the wind died down a couple of days ago. Luckily it’s not setting, but I find it so strange when it settles on the sand!! ... See MoreSee Less
What do you mean luckily it’s not settling?! You weirdo!! Snow is ace!! Let it settle!!
It does seem strange because you would expect the sand to be too salty and melt the snow.
I love the weather up here in Orkney, but todays wind literally takes your breath away. It’s supposed to be building until it’s peak at about 3pm, we’ve an amber warning, so glad it’s not red like further south. #mothernature #itsatadfresh #staysafe ... See MoreSee Less
Good job you don’t wear a wig 😆
What was that.....we couldn't hear a word 🤣🤣
A small step for us, a giant leap for our pizzas! We’ve finished building the oven, she just needs her flue connecting and we’re good to go!

A few more degrees so the dogs don’t have to wear jackets? Brrr - says she from the freeeeezing cold south of France!!! Looks fabulous!!!
At least you haven't got a black Labrador trying to help - Molly now has black and white whiskers!
Up to your earlobes in paint, so I guess not baking today 🙈
There’s some power in the sea today, the waves aren’t huge but they are relentless. Crashing up the beach bringing up piles of tangles along with a few old creel pots. We walked along Whitemill Bay until the rain arrived, then made a hasty retreat back to base and a big hot chocolate! 💨🌊🐾🐾☕️ ... See MoreSee Less

I’ve spotted an unusual bird of prey a few times this week flying low over the grass, it’s ringed tail, black wing tips and colours perfectly matching the description of a male Northern Harrier. ... See MoreSee Less
It'll be a Hen Harrier - fairly common in Orkney. Males are grey and females brown, but both have the distinctive white rump 😊
I think it's a male hen harrier. Great photo!

Over the weekend we had some strong winds and a lot more rain, so I went out for a wander to get some stunning wave photos. I didn’t find any big waves, but found this little chap instead on the beach at the end of our road! He kept poking his tongue out at me and I kept missing it. I didn’t want to disturb him so left him sleeping in peace.
