About the neighbourhood
The cottage is situated on the north shore of Scapa Flow in open farmland and about 500 yds from the sea shore. There is a coastal walk along the cliff top to the Orkneyinga Saga Visitor Centre in the one direction and to the open sands of Swanbister Bay in the other. There is extensive walking in the Orphir hills at the back of the cottage.

Within Orphir Village there is a post office and a pub serving food most evenings of the week. For food shopping it will be necessary to drive the 10 miles to Kirkwall, where there is a selection of supermarkets and other food shops, or to Stromness.
