We stayed in Puffin Quoy with our two dogs for one week. The cottage is beautifully presented and immaculate. It's so comfortable you can't help but relax and switch off. The views are also amazing and it's in a really good location to explore to explore the mainland. It's one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in and we've stayed in many over the years. Kevin and Caroline are great hosts - welcoming and helpful but give you plenty of privacy. We have already re-booked.
Beautifully set up and with full length windows looking out on Scapa Flow - such a cosy retreat after a day out and about. Caroline and Kevin are such welcoming and relaxed hosts too. It was hard to leave.
We stayed at the Granary Quoy and it exceeded expectations. The decor is perfect - carefully chosen lamps, statues, artwork, framed photos all work to make the cottage feel comfy and relaxing at the same time as being beautiful. The wonderful use of stone and fossils to build walls and floors complements the wooden furniture and leather sofas and woven blankets. The views from the windows are wonderful too - you can see the horizontal lines of the golden fields, blue sea and sky. At night the lights from the Houston ferry twinkle. Add a log fire to that and you have a idyllic scene. And then thee are the gardens! So sad that this cottage will no longer be rented out.
What an absolutely SUPERB stay. Where to start: Location excellent for exploring Island north and south. Views from Cottage lovely. Cottage itself warm and comfy and well kitted-out. The owners were charm and welcome personified: nothing was a bother. We have travelled MANY of the Scottish Isles over the last 10 years and this stay was easily one of the very best. PS: Plus: If you are a gardener - then the main house has an award winning garden which you are welcome to walk around.
Stayed with family in The Old Granary. Beautiful, cosy cottage with amazing views across the bay. The cottage was very clean and well equipped and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Didn't want to leave!
