Reload this mapHa Cottage is a former croft house situated at the end of a quiet road not far from the RSPB reserve at Waulkmill Bay and commanding lovely views over Scapa Flow, the South Isles and the hills of Hoy. There is an abundance of wildlife outside the sheltered garden. The rocky beach, only 100metres away, has breeding seals, rock pools and is popular for beach combing and snorkelling. Whales have even been seen from the garden!
- In the evening why not light the wood burning stove and relax with a glass of local whisky, Highland Park or Scapa, and enjoy a good read from the well-stocked bookcase.
- Whether you are having a short break or a longer visit, Ha has all you need for a comfortable stay.
- All linen and towels (not beach towels) are provided.
- Well equipped kitchen with a gas hob and a small table top oven.
- Large fridge/freezer.
- Washing machine, washing line, airer and tumble dryer.
- Storage heating system keeps the house warm.
- Off road parking.
- Substantial garden area.
- 'The Noust' pub/restaurant/post office is 2 miles west where you can enjoy good Orkney food after a hard day's exploring, fishing or relaxing in the garden or sunporch.
- Orphir's Round Church and the Viking Centre make a good introduction to our long history.
- Orphir is the birthplace of one of Orkney's greatest sons, Dr John Rae, who discovered the North West Passage.
Ingirid's grandfather, J Storer Clouston, was a popular historian and novelist. His wartime thriller, 'The Spy in Black', was made into a film by Powell and Pressburger in the late 30s. Both the book and the DVD are in the cottage for your amusement.
