Bordering on the Bay of Firth, Finstown (midway between Kirkwall and Stromness), the Lodges are an ideal base for exploring Mainland Orkney and all the Orkney Islands. The lodges can be booked for short or longer stays, starting any day of the week.
Atlantis lodges offer flexible, high quality accommodation right by the shore, all with stunning views over the Bay of Firth and easy access to Kirkwall, Stromness and the main sites of interest.
Ideal for families or groups holidaying together. The lodges can be booked for short or longer stays, starting any day of the week and we’re open all year round.
Our modern accommodation is conveniently located in Finstown, just off the A965 which connects Orkney’s two main towns, Kirkwall and Stromness. Our central location provides good access to transport links to and within Orkney. Finstown is 7 miles from the Northlink Ferry Terminal in Stromness, 17 miles from Pentland Ferries arrival point in St Margaret’s Hope and 10 miles from Kirkwall Airport.
We offer 8 2-person lodges, each situated on the ground floor. There are 2 single beds in each bedroom. A double bed is available on request.
The lounge/diner boasts stunning views over the bay of Firth.
There are 4 family lodges sleeping 4 people, each situated on the upper floor of the building. 1 bedroom holds a double, the other a set of bunk beds (1 lodge is available with twin beds and set of bunks).
Kitchens in all lodges are well equipped with microwave oven, electric cooker, ample tableware and cooking utensils.

Linen and towels are provided and there is an onsite laundry for guests.
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.
We are an experienced family business, with knowledgeable staff who can help you to plan your stay. For further information, including availability, please see our website: www.atlantislodges.com
A warm welcome awaits you,
