Orkney mainland offers delightful villages dotted through farmland with spectacular cliff scenery along the Atlantic coastline, sheltered sandy bays and unrivalled hill and moorland vistas. You can enjoy discovering the fascinating history - from the famous prehistoric village at Skara Brae through to the period of Norse and Viking rule, the Renaissance architecture of the early 17th century. Orkney does not just offer historic interest, why not jump on the ro-ro ferry to the islands of Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre or enjoy cycling, sea fishing, deep sea diving and pony trekking.

Finstown, with a shop, post office, pub, garage and petrol, is just over ten minutes' drive away.

Cook up a meal in the well- equipped kitchen with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. The door leading from the kitchen takes you to a utility area with washing machine, tumble dryer and separate shower room with WC. Continuing along the hallway to three of the bedrooms, one comfy king-size bedroom with garden and sea views, one double and one twin. There is a bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle and WC. Exploring back through the conservatory you will find the single bedroom and the spacious lounge/dining with floor to ceiling windows, so you can enjoy the picturesque views.

This is a gorgeous house with great views out to sea and hillside. It is well furnished and decorated with personal paintings and belongings making it very homely. The underfloor heating coupled with the wood burner makes it lovely and warm, and the well stocked kitchen has everything you need.
