Creativity & Wellbeing next to the beach on the island of Hoy, Orkney.

Visitors will enjoy browsing the summer art exhibition in this small gallery overlooking the beach, and taking time to choose from a small selection of arts & crafts on display in the little shop. Rest & relax here to enjoy the view of the bay while savouring a mug of good coffee & a chunk of homebaked cake (refreshments starting later in 2021).

Why not find your inspiration, get creative & take part in an art activity inspired by these lovely surroundings. Classes are suited to beginners & are held in the Sun Room with an incredible view of the sea & white sand beach of Kirk Hope at Osmundwall, Hoy.

In the little gallery shop there are paintings, crafts, ceramics, designer knitwear, cards & gifts all affordably priced.

Holistic spa therapies are available to leave you feeling refreshed & rejuvenated - Reiki, spiritual healing, ladies back & shoulder massage & footcare (podiatry). Psychic tarot card readings are available too (for entertainment purposes only) & these can be bought online & emailed to you.

Just outside the gallery is the quiet beach which features in the Orkneyinga Saga which tells the tale of Vikings coming ashore here to attempt to convert pagan islanders to christianity. Visitors can sit on the Viking seat and see a panoramic view of other islands, towards Scapa Flow & the Pentland Firth. A circular walk takes in Cantick Head & Lighthouse and the southern shore of Hoy with spectacular views to the Scottish mainland.
