THINGS TO DO

 
Fishing

 

There is excellent trout fishing at the  Boardhouse loch or why not try the nearby Harray and Stenness lochs, just a short drive away.

Bird Watching

 

The ideal location for spotting rare birds with two RSPB reserves close by. Take a walk up to the Marwick head bird reserve to see if you can spot the puffins.

Walking

 

Explore many miles of beautiful coastal paths. Bring your binoculars to spot some whales or relax on the many beaches Orkney has to offer. With excellent air and ferry links to the north and south isles, the possibilities are endless.

Leisure Activities

 

Excellent, modern leisure facilities are available at the Pickaquoy centre in Kirkwall.

Historical sites

 

Earls Palace and The Kitchener Memorial are within walking distance. Or go further back in time with a visit to Skara Brae, Ness of Brodgar or the Standing Stones of Stenness, all just a short drive away. A little further afield, you will find the impressive St Magnus Cathedral, the Italian Chapel and the Tomb of the Eagles.

Cultural Heritage

You can visit the nearby Kirbuster and Corigall farm museums to get an insight into traditional farming methods. Or perhaps follow the craft trail to discover a wide range of local crafts. We would highly recommend a tour of the Barony Mill, Orkney's only working water mill.

GUEST REVIEWS

Vanessa and Graham have done a wonderful job of renovating the cottage and there is nothing we could have wanted for. The beds are super comfortable, the kitchen equipped with everything we could need and the towels were soft and fluffy.
There are the most amazing views from every window and many of the evenings were spent sipping a glass of Highland Park while watching the cows, the birds and the views across the Brough of Birsay.
