Rackwick has been described as one of the most beautiful places in Orkney and over the years is has been an inspiration for artists, composers and writers.
Cliffgate is a newly built luxury property located beneath heather clad hills and with a beautiful view of the red sandstone cliffs and the stunning Rackwick Bay. Cliffgate was partly stone built in a style respectful of its special location and internally the house has been fitted to the highest possible standard for modern day living. The modern, minimalist decor provides a backdrop for locally inspired modern art.
The Island of Hoy offers the visitor an opportunity to relax in an environment of unspoilt natural beauty and an idyllic landscape in which to enjoy outdoor activities. An area rich in botany, ornithology, geology and geomorphology - has led most of northwest Hoy to achieve National and European designations as a highly protected environment. A 3 mile walk from the cottage takes you to the cliffs which look out over the Old Man of Hoy and a fifteen minute walk takes you to the beautiful Rackwick beach - relaxation guaranteed!
