Bay of Skaill
Bay Cottage is a charming, detached cottage set right by the gorgeous beach at the Bay of Skaill, less than half a mile from the ancient settlement of Skara Brae.
What would have originally been a simple croft house has been extended to create a spacious and inviting retreat that makes the very most of its views out to sea and is an ideal base for exploring the islands.
At the heart of the house is the snug sitting room that has a wood-burning stove to keep it nice and toasty. The kitchen is well-equipped for whipping up some culinary delights and it is partly open to the bright dining room where additional seating has been set up by the window to allow guests to take advantage of the wonderful sea views.
The hallway at the back of the cottage leads through to the two attractive and comfortable bedrooms, a colourful double bedroom and a neat twin room. The bedrooms share a chic, modern bathroom that has the luxury of having a large walk-in shower and a lovely claw-footed rolltop bath.
Pretty grassed garden grounds around the cottage extend to several acres and peter off into wild croftland beyond with sea views and stunning sunsets to enjoy.
