Holiday Rental House
19 St Catherine’s Place is a Historic Scotland listed building in the heart of The City and Royal Burgh of Kirkwall, Orkney’s principle town. An ideal base for your holiday to explore Orkney yet only a short walk to the magnificent St Magnus Cathedral, the Bishops and Earls Palaces, Tankerness Museum, the many shops, bars, restaurants, with Kirkwall marina and harbour located just at the end of the street. Centrally positioned; close to Travel Centre providing easy access to all ferry terminals and airport, so for this property a car is far from essential. This new to the market (2015) three bedroom house consists of two double bedrooms and one single bedroom, a large lounge and a kitchen diner, with an upstairs bathroom, (over bath shower, basin and toilet) and a separate ground floo...19 St Catherine’s Place is a Historic Scotland listed building in the heart of The City and Royal Burgh of Kirkwall, Orkney’s principle town.

Excellent situation close to Kirkwall shops, harbour, pubs restaurants, bus station and places of interest. Plenty of parking nearby. The house is on quite a busy road but not too noisy. No garden. Ideal base for touring this lovely and interesting island.
