“Beautiful, peaceful place”
Reviewed 10 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Had a wonderful few nights here in this beautiful part of Orkney. Jennifer greeted us from the late night ferry from Shetland with a very warm welcome and a mug of tea! The cottage itself is immaculate and homely and we really enjoyed our few days here in the peace and quiet with the stunning views over Scapa flow. Would highly recommend!

“Best ever”
Reviewed 20 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

In all my years self catering I think this is the best house we have stayed in. Fully equipped for anyone arriving late tea coffee etc. Very clean, fantastic hosts. Not too far from anything but you do need a car.

Hi Jim, lovely to have met you all and thank you so much for your glowing review. I am very, very appreciative of them and very pleased you all enjoyed your holiday in Orkney and especially your stay at Peedie Waaness. Just thought I would tell you, it is an absolutely stunning evening tonight, the sun is shining, the sea is glistening, and the Highland Cattle are grazing. What more can we ask? Glad you were all able to see it too.Thank you again for your kind words. Best wishes to you all. Jennifer

“Excellent accommodation with stunning views”
Reviewed 31 July 2017 for a stay in May 2017

I stayed for two months while conducting fieldwork in Orkney. The house is equipped with more than you would expect and is absolutely impecable and clean. Great shower, nice suntrap at the back garden for a morning coffee outside while admiring the views to Scalpa Flow, which are an absolute treat. The house sits in a peaceful spot from Burray but close to the town, 10 minute drive to the Hope and only 25 minutes away from Kirkwall. Jennifer and Trevor are welcoming and made me feel like home. Overall, a great place to stay for a holiday or work! Oh, and the wildlife around is amazing! I was lucky to see killer whales from the living room, but also saw otters, marsh harriers, short-eared owls and seals nearby. Great place!

“Delightful location with a wonderful island location”
Reviewed 24 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Peedie Waaness provides the perfect place to stay for a holiday in Orkney. The accommodation and hosts provide all you could wish for in a holiday cottage stay. Convenient for the Pentland ferry service the cottage is extremely comfortable and handily placed for exploring the wonders to be found on the Orkney Islands.
