Beautifully converted cottage surrounded by fields with view to the sea. Warm welcome from hosts Colin and Karen - a generous welcome pack of local produce (including freshly made scones with jam and clotted cream - fantastic!) Owners living next to the property - accessible when needed but never obtrusive. Exceedingly comfortable and well equipped property. Property is situated on...

So we arrived to a great welcome from Karen, including scones, jam and cream, local bread and oatcakes and a lovely wee bottle of local gin! What a start. Really well outfitted cottage, everything you could possibly need. Sometimes self catering, there's something you have forgotten, but not here - everything is provided for you. Clear views to the sea...

What a great little cottage. Lovely views out to the sea in the distance. Well-equipped. Nice touch with the eggs / milk / essentials there on arrival. Loads of local information leaflets available. Even some freshly baked scones one evening! The only thing we'd add would be blackout curtains for the bedroom - you can actually see the light from...

About the neighbourhood
The islands of Orkney are mainly low lying—a gently rolling landscape of green fields, heather moorland heath and lochs (lakes). The underlying sandstone rock breaks-down easily to form good fertile soils and much of the landscape is farmed, growing mainly grass for animal feed. Most of the farmland is devoted to the production of beef cattle and Orkney beef is prized for its high quality. Sheep are also present in high numbers and the production of barley, potatoes (tatties) and turnips (neeps) is also common. The island of Hoy (meaning in Old Norse) is the exception with dramatic hills and valleys and spectacular cliffs.
