“Wonderful cottage in a beautiful area.”
Reviewed 10 June 2019 for a stay in May 2019

The location of the cottage is out of town in a quiet rural setting, very close to the coast and in the middle of a working farm. The cottage itself is beautiful, very well appointed and spacious. The kitchen, unlike most rentals, contained everything from coffee to every spice imaginable, while the large bedrooms are very comfortable and also well appointed. Sitting in the front windows (shown in the photo) early in the morning is one memory I'll have of Orkney for a very long time. We were sad to leave. Thanks Joan.

“A sheer delight ”
Reviewed 7 April 2019 for a stay in April 2019

What a location. Absolutely stunning location and area. Great views of the beach and bay. Accommodation wise, I've never stayed in an accommodation that has absolutely everything. I mean absolutely everything you need. It's catered for so well. Very comfy. Very well thought out. No complaints at all. None whatsoever.

“Fantastic location, comfortable and fun”
Reviewed 21 January 2019 for a stay in May 2018

This is located in a beautiful corner of Orkney, near enough to the beach and coast path to enjoy the outdoors or simply the view in full comfort whatever the weather. We enjoyed the decorative taste of the Swiss owners, everything worked on a practical basis but much of the furniture and all of the art was from local artists, they clearly love their family holidays here a much as we did.

“Stunning house in wonderful location.”
Reviewed 15 September 2018 for a stay in September 2018

This was our first trip to Orkney but unlikely to be our last. Brockan Cottage is actually a spacious extremely high spec home with absolutely everything you might need. The location means you can see the bay & the large corner windows give wonderful views across fields to the water. Nowhere is far with a car on Orkney..the driving is easy with good visibility as there are so few trees. Birsay area is packed with interesting sites. Highly recommend Scara Brae & the local storyteller at the folk museum. Joan made sure we were welcomed & had everything we needed. Marvellous.
