Unwind in Cedarlee, a tranquil haven on the island of Rousay, with beautiful sea views.

Cedarlee is the ideal base for a peaceful, relaxing break. Comfortable and well appointed, Cedarlee is truly a home away from home. A cedar-clad cottage, with solid oak flooring throughout and environmentally friendly air-to-water heating, there is a spacious kitchen/dining/living area with cathedral ceiling, as well as a double bedroom with ensuite, and a twin room next to a generous bathroom.

All linen and towels are provided, as well as a food welcome pack. Ideally placed close to Rousay pier, Cedarlee provides good access to Rousay's many historical monuments - Trumland House and gardens, the cairns of Taversoe Tuick, Blackhammer, Knowe of Yarso, Midhowe and Midhowe Broch. There is ample scope to undertake many interesting hill walks, with good opportunities for bird watching and investigating the varied flora and fauna. There are also plenty of shore and beach walks, with Saviskaill beach an ideal spot for watching seals.

Instead of cooking, enjoy eating out at the local hotel, the Taversoe or have coffee or a drink at The Pier. The Craft Hub has a selection of locally produced craft work for sale. In addition, exploring the nearby islands of Egilsay and Wyre, which are served by the same inter-island ferry, MV Eynhallow, is practical on foot. St. Magnus Church on Egilsay, St. Mary's Church and Cubbie Roo's Castle on Wyre, are all well worth a visit. With six crossings a day and connecting bus services to Kirkwall for each ferry, exploring Kirkwall and the Orkney mainland is also possible.

The Orcadian owners live next door, and are always available to answer any queries to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
