The cottage was excellent - immaculate, and very well equipped in all areas. I would not hesitate recommending it. There was also a very good welcome pack provided

“An all round pleasure”

Comfortable, well furnished and spotlessly clean - a pleasure to spend time there. A short walk to the hotel provided good food, snacks and a decent pint with friendly staff to complete a the day after viewing a selection of the many interesting places to visit on Orkney's mainland. Want to eat in? Excellent kitchen with all the necessary gear - get your eggs from the guardian of the keys - free range - perfect! I had good memories of Orkney from way back - I now have a lot of equally good new ones. PS. If you have young children there's a big, safe garden and a play park on the other side of the road.

As another reviewer stated, the photos do not do the cottage any justice. It is a beautiful old building and by British standards the interior is simply luxurious, from the fully equiped kitchen with everything you might need (which is more than rare in rental) to the "real" bathroom(s) (no shabby plumbing, no electric shower), double-glazing, great heating... It is really spatious and it was immaculate. We were there in the spring and the garden was in full bloom, it was gorgeous... If you have very small ones, you won't believe how great the place is, baby-toilet seat, fire guard, baby room... We have never, anywhere (and we do get around!) rented a place of this quality! The owners have a whole set of explanations from how to work the heating to where to go for puffins...
Francophones, n'hesitez pas une seconde a louer cette maison traditionelle, plus que confortable, a des gens adorables! Le jardin est une merveille, il y a un poele a bois (ou a tourbe!), du fromage des orcades dans le frigo...

“Beautiful place to stay”

Such a lovely place to stay I really didn't want to leave. Great kitchen with everything you could need, cosy living room with log burning stove, huge garden and lovely comfy beds. The very best part is the shower in the ensuite bathroom upstairs, it could blast you into next week if you wanted it to.
Owners leave a well written & well thought out information booklet and some yummy local biccy's.
The cottage looks nice in the photos but they really don't do it justice and the whole place is spotlessly clean.
We will definitely be recommending this place to everyone.
