Palace Cottage  is a traditional stone built cottage located in the beautiful tranquil village of the Palace, Birsay. Situated right next to the ruins of the 16th century Earls Palace. Recently renovated with a new fitted kitchen, the cottage retains many of its original features such as the wooden tongue and groove paneling on the walls and ceilings throughout, as well as its open fire (perfect for cosy winter's evenings).  
  • This is an excellent central location, within walking distance to the tidal Brough of Birsay, with its pictish and norse settlement, Lighthouse and its lovely sandy beach.
  • Many lovely walks including the walk to the Whalebone where you can see many birds, Skipi Geo fisherman's hut or simply the stunning sunsets. Marwick Head close by with its bird watching and Kitchener's Memorial. Swanney and Boardhouse lochs are 5 minutes away and provide some excellent fishing.
  • The village itself has its own well stocked shop and its very popular Birsay Bay Tearooms, where you can sample some local produce in its snacks and homebakes whilst enjoying the views overlooking the Bay and Brough.
