Greenwell Cottage is an old croft house built on one level. The cottage is idyllically situated in 25 acres of arable farmland with panoramic views over the waters of Scapa Flow and has its own secluded rocky beach. Greenwell Cottage is not posh - but very homely.
Burray is a small island with sandy beaches and sheltered bays making it ideal for water sports, including canoeing, waterskiing, sailing, swimming and diving in the Scapa Flow.
Burray village is approximately over one mile away from the cottage and its facilities include a restaurant/pub, hotel and local shop.
The nearby village of St Margaretís Hope is on the island of South Ronaldsay and shares the same amenities as Burray, but also includes a church, post office, nine hole golf course and the roll on/roll off Pentland Ferries catamaran from Gills Bay, Thurso, Scotland.
The Royal Borough of Kirkwall is over 11 miles from the cottage across the Churchill Causeways to the Orkney mainland. Kirkwall is a bustling town with plenty of shops, hotels, restaurants and recreational facilities.
