The cottages are part of a croft which is one of the oldest in the parish and was part of a working farm once owned by the Earl of Zetland. It fell into disrepair and stood empty for 50 years until it was fully renovated and extended in 2008, with the original cottage being transformed into a comfortable holiday cottage which sleeps 4 and if required has access to a cot bed for babies and infants up to 5 years. In addition there is also an attached barn which has been converted into a smaller holiday cottage which has one bedroom containing a double bed, however there is a recess on the first floor containing one single bed allowing the cottage to accommodate up to 3 people and there is also access to a cot bed for babies and infants up to 5 years. Both cottages are surrounded by farm land and are close to the Brough of Deerness, the Gloup and the Mull Head RSPB reserve.
