Welcome to North Ronaldsay Lighthouse Keepers Cottage
Sleeps 4. Accommodation comprises: One double and one twin bedroom. We regret to advise you that there is no sofa bed in either of the lighthouse properties. The property has a kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and cooker. Bathroom with bath only. The washing machine, drier and pulley are in the utility room to the side of the cottage to be shared by Lighthousekeepers' Cottage 1 and 2. Services: Open fires and oil central heating, water heated by immersion.
The cottage is on ground floor level and is suitable for some mobile impaired. There is a disabled access ramp to the cottage as well as a fully accessible toilet and shower. The area is not hazardous for children (i.e no cliffs) and dogs on leads are welcome. The island is home to 2,700 sheep of the 5,000 year old North Ronaldsay breed, so your care with dogs would be appreciated.
Food orders can be taken (please let us have them two weeks in advance) and it will be delivered to your fridge for your arrival. This could include local lamb, as well as general groceries.
If you are interested in a larger group/family booking, additional accommodation is available at North Ronaldsay Lighthousekeepers’ Cottage 2 which is next to this cottage and accommodates 4 guests as well.
The houses are open all year round. Fifteen minute flight three times a day from Kirkwall operated by Loganair or a 3-hour ferry trip again from Kirkwall operated by Orkney Ferries. The ferry runs on a Friday, and therefore both properties are available Friday to Friday, though short breaks in the winter will be flexible on arrival and departure days.
Please note, during the winter months, guests are advised to fly to the island as opposed to sail as sailings can be disrupted.
