Our second stay at Hen Harrier Cottage and we were just as happy and pleased with all aspects of our stay. The personal welcome from Robbie and Eileen is very special, and they really do everything they can to accommodate your needs and make your stay as perfect as they can. A very comfortable and well equipped house, beautiful scenery and surrounded by amazing wildlife, hares, and an abundance of bird life. With just a 20 minute drive either direction to Kirkwall or Stromness, it’s a great central location for exploring the island and most sites of interest are only a short drive away. I cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough, and I can’t wait to return. Thank you again Robbie and Eileen, your service and hospitality is exceptional. Hopefully see you soon! Xx

Our first visit to Orkney and we have absolutely loved it! Cottiscarth Cottages were recommended to us by friends and I am so glad we decided to visit! The cottages are beautifully presented and a real home from home - with everything you need 💜 The setting is amazing - plenty surrounding space and the most amazing views to enjoy! You have your own telescope to enjoy the surroundings too! Each cottage has the use of a shed also if needed The location has been amazing for our adventures all over Orkney! Look no further and stay at Cottiscarth Cottages - you will not be disappointed!

Absolutely excellent accommodation, in a perfect location for exploring the whole island. The house is immaculate, very comfortable, very well equipped and has the most beautiful views from the comfort of your settee! All rooms very spacious with a lovely large shower room, and I immediately felt at home. The personal welcome from Robbie and the welcome gift of local goodies were very special and very much appreciated. I cannot wait to return in the Spring, and I cannot recommend highly enough!

My husband booked one of the cottages for a six night stay at Cottiscarth Cottages. I had no idea where we were staying so it was a huge surprise to arrive and see the quality of the place. We were greeted by Robbie & Eileen on arrival and they were so friendly and welcoming. The cottage is very comfortable, immaculate and very modern in its decor. It has been kitted out to the highest standard and we instantly felt at home. We found the cottages to be of an excellent location for exploring the mainland and within easy driving of the ferry ports for travelling further. We were lucky to be able to watch the Log Pull in Stromness on Hogmanay and The Ba in Kirkwall on New Years Day. We found a few places were closed due to it being the winter season but I highly recommend visiting at this time of year.

Oh what a wonderful few days we have just enjoyed. 8 Irish tour guides on our jollies. This place is perfect. The wires the peace and quiet. everything you need... every thing. Eileen and Robbie are so kind and welcoming. And just a phone call away if needed. The houses are so clean and warm and I just can't express how lovely our stay was. I hope I get to return to Orkney, I will definitely be staying here 😘 thanks for the wonderful welcome the incredible views and the seriously comfortable lodgings. See you soon.
