Orkney is famous for the quality of its environment and richness of its heritage. The small, peaceful village of Finstown - where the Boathouse is located - is mid-way between Kirkwall and Stromness, Orkney's two main towns. There is a shop, post office, pub, art gallery and riding school nearby.
The Lodges are set on the shoreline, with the heather-covered Heddle Hill rising up behind. Seals, otters, eider ducks and many wading birds are regularly seen in the area, as well as short-eared owls and hen harriers up on the hill.
The Cuween Cairn, a Stone Age monument, stands on the hill above Finstown. Excavations here uncovered 24 dog skulls, suggesting they had special significance for the Neolithic people. The Cairn also commands a wonderful view across the Bay of Firth towards the North Isles - the short walk is well worth the effort!
The West Mainland has so much to offer within easy reach - lovely walks, sandy beaches, RSPB nature reserves, freshwater lochs for trout fishing, local museums, craft workshops and tearooms.
