“Wonderful, peaceful cottage.”
Reviewed 10 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

The cottage is set in the peaceful Orkney countryside and has great views over the area.
We were welcomed to the cottage by Karen, who lives close by. The interior of the cottage is very pleasant and has everything that you could want and more, including a welcome basket filled with Orkney produce. Never got to see the fudge but our granddaughters enjoyed it ! ! .
We were within a short drive of the majority of the "Must see" Orkney sights, and sites, Skara Brae, Broch of Gurness, Birsay etc. And a brewery selling excellent beers a few hundred yards along the road.
All in all a wonderful relaxing week in an excellent location and cottage.

All we needed in the property including vac plum cleaner (with 2 dogs needed that!) well equipped kitchen not that we cooked much lovely outside space with a secure garden. Good for off road parking.
