“The most wonderful accommodation”
Reviewed May 17, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

How can I describe this wonderful interesting and characterful cottage .....it oozed history and the spirit of Orkney while being warm, welcoming and modern. The location was perfect, we loved the west mainland and the cottage is in a beautiful rural setting whilst also being so near to everything we wanted to do. On arrival we walked round the property and every room was a treat. We loved it and never wanted to leave. This place is a hidden gem.

“Perfect Holiday Experience”
Reviewed April 28, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We really loved staying in this house. It is full of character and yet with every modern comfort and convenience. Although the house is close to a working farm, we really didn’t notice this and found the location to be completely quiet and private. All you can hear are the geese and curlews in the surrounding fields.

“Wonderful Location, Atmospheric Experience”

Furso has a really excellent location - you could not possibly be more central for getting around the Mainland of Orkney - it's really close to Maes Howe and the Ring of Brodgar and being in the centre of the island, it's not far to any where else. Fantastic views of Hoy through the window made for wonderful sunsets.
In addition you have a very modern house in terms of facilities (heating worked extremely well and quickly, mattresses new and comfortable) but a great experience in that the decor and fittings inside give a sense of a crofting life in the past. Very quiet location in rolling farm land, view of the loch. Perfect!
