“Amazing stay in a beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 29 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Stayed for 1 week on our first visit to Orkney. Cottage was extremely well equipped with everything we needed to cater for ourselves. Comfortable, clean, eco friendly and fantastic location. Bed so comfy I wanted to bring it home!! Dog friendly too which is fantastic as the island is perfect for exploring with your dog!! Thanks for everything. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for accommodation on the island. :)

Beautifully refurbished cottage in a great location. It has aircon, underfloor heating in the bathroom, freesat and fast wi-fi. It even has it's own windmill to provide electricity and a vegetable garden. Add in the stunning views and you have the perfect place to stay.

The cottage was very clean and well looked after. The location was perfect for views of the sea as well as sunsets and sunrises. We had a lovely time and would definitely return. Best location on the island.

“Fantastic Place to Stay”
Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A beautiful cottage with all the mod cons, tastefully decorated, warm, comfortable, spacious and spotless. Birsay is a stunning location with plenty to do weather permitting.
