Burra View, Innertown, Stromness, Orkney, KW16 3JW

    Enjoy the magic of an Orkney holiday from the comfort and luxury of this newly built, spacious accommodation.

    Burra View self catering apartment was build as an annex to the family home in 2010 and has stunning panoramic sea views across Hoy Sound and out to the west coast of Orkney. Enjoy watching the small local fishing boat go to sea and the Northlink Ferry Hamnavoe pass by from the large bay window in the lounge.

    Only about 20 minutes walk from the town of Stromness, it is situated adjacent to farmland so you can enjoy both the peace and tranquillity of a rural location without being too far away from the shops, pubs, restaurants, swimming pool, Stromness Museum, Pier Arts Centre, golf club, play parks and other amenities Stromness has to offer.
