Self Catering

Ben End, Villasquoy, Stenness, Orkney, KW16 3EZ

    This purpose built self-catering accommodation is in an entirely self-contained section of a recently built house in a elevated position with marvellous views.

    Ben End, Villasquoy, is 4 miles from Stromness, 11 miles from Kirkwall and within easy travelling distance of the world famous chambered cairn of Maeshowe, the impressive standing stones of the Ring of Brodgar and the unique Stone Age village of Skara Brae.

    The house enjoys breathtaking panoramic views of Stromness, Hoy Sound and the loch of Stenness. The quality of light is a constant source of wonder in this quiet, open location especially favoured by artists and photographers.

On the ground floor, the entrance hall with toilet facilities, leads into a spacious sitting and eating area with television.

The islands are rich in historic interest from earliest times, through their Norse heritage to Scapa Flow as a naval base and anchorage in more recent times. Food products and transport facilities are of a high standard. There are ro-ro links to the North and South Islands.
