The low original sea facing door opens onto a small lawned area and then, there is the sea.

Direct access to the shore via a short steepish slope

The views of Scapa Flow to the south with the Hoy Hills to the west are stunning

Five islands in view, headlands, lightouses, beacons and passing boats

Watch sunrises and sunsets and sea moods

Watch seals and lots of seabirds (gannets, terns, oystercatchers, short eared owls and hen harriers etc)

Otters and whales have been seen from the cottage but are very rare.

Sit, write, paint or walk on the rocky shore

Enjoy a drink on the patio watching the movement of the water and the drama of the sea and sky

Commune alone with nature or visit some of the many interesting sites Orkney has to offer

Within easy travelling distance are The World Heritage Sites of Skara Brae, Maeshowe, The Ring of Brodgar and the Standing Stones of Stenness. Other archaelogical sites also close by and well worth a visit

Take time exploring the beautiful Orkney islands - Hoy, Rousay, Shapinsay, Eday, Westray, Sanday, North Ronaldsay, Flotta, Graemsay Wyre and Egilsay can all be visited by local boats - many of them have daily crossings.
