Dear Visitor - it is with great sadness that we have decided not to open our Peedie House self-catering for the period August and September for a variety of reasons, all CV-19 related. This is the first time since opening in 2007 that we have closed the facility and we hope that you will bear with us and understand. Instead, we look forward to welcoming you in Spring 2021, when we all trust that Orkney will be fresh and awaiting your visit!
You can check our self-catering availability on the following weblink: http://orcadianwildlife.co.uk/wPress/peedie-house-availability/
