Odin was built in 1936, using wood from the Cunard liner Mauretania, by Captain Cooper a retired sea captain, who wanted to see water from each room in the house. Some of the original fittings are still evident in the kitchen, stairs and front porch.
Accommodation comprises four bedrooms all with en suite facilities, main bathroom, sitting room with peat burning fire, sun porch, dining room with adjoining large kitchen, utility room, fully equipped rod room and summer house.
“What a beautiful house, very tastefully decorated and such an idyllic setting. I also don't think there will be another house on the planet from which you can see 6 World Heritage class Neolithic monuments from either the house or the drive! I couldn't get over that alone!” Liz Howard-Thornton
Watch Stone, Standing Stones of Stenness and Barnhouse Neolithic Village are beside Odin. The internationally acclaimed Ness of Brodgarand and Ring of Brodgarare are just up the road and Maeshowe is within one mile of Odin.
Odin has a fully equipped rod room with toilet. The adjoining summer house has tea and coffee making facilities and a table capable of seating up to 10 people should you wish to share your catch in a relaxed atmosphere. A ghillie can be arranged.
The house is a luxury bird hide where a large variety of birds can be seen from each window.
