Evie, Mainland, Orkney Islands, Scotland
The house has been renovated over the last two years and was offered to the holiday market on a self catering basis for the first time in September 2016. It sits in a 4 acre plot with views over farmland to Eynhallow sound. There are two good sized bedrooms, separate dining room and lounge both with wood burning stoves and a well equipped new kitchen. Plenty of parking and easy access to lots of things to do and see including a sandy beach (Aikerness Beach) just a 2 minute drive or within walking distance. Ample dry storage for bikes or other equipment in our outbuildings. We are a great place to stay to see everything Orkney has to offer being just 20 minutes from both Kirkwall, Stromness and the heart of Neolithic Orkney..a world UNESCO heritage site. There is a local shop, post office and cafe within walking distance or a 2 minute dri... Read more

About the neighborhood
The village of Stennes is approximately 20 minutes where you'll find Maeshowe, the Ness of Brodgar and the Standing Stones. Two lochs are either side, one being freshwater. Great for fishing. There are bird hides aplenty. Cottascarth is in Rendall as you drive through to get to us and one near Costa Head just through Evie Village. It's very peaceful here ...we are in a typical countryside location with Evie beach within a 15 to 20 minute easy walk on the flat as well and Eviedale cafe half way! You can stop for coffee! Yet you can easily reach so many of other world famous sites Orkney has to offer. Tingwall is very close by with easy access to the Rousay/Egilsay and Wyre ferry and he new Fern Valley Wildlife Centre has just opened in 2017.
Getting around
You really need a car here but stagecoach does run a bus service through Evie but only about three times a day. We are happy to pick guests up on arrival or take them to the airport or ferry terminal. We can also arrange for taxis or tour guides.
Car recommended
How to get there
