Unique boathouse design, with superb sea views. Great family accommodation with garage for bikes, outdoor area and furnished patio.
The unique boathouse is built to a traditional Orkney design, which used an upturned boat as a roof. The house has lots of character and wonderful views over the Bay of Firth from the downstairs lounge, first floor sunrise lounge and outside from the private lawn.
Perfect for the family, the house has a modern fully equipped kitchen, three comfortable bedrooms and its own garage for storing your bicycles and equipment. The garden area has patio furniture so you can sit out and take in the view.
The Boathouse offers a comfortable home-from-home and promises you a memorable holiday in Orkney.
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.
Some of our customers' favourites are the ancient monuments within the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site, close to Finstown. Here, you'll see the enigmatic Stone Age monuments, testament to a lost civilisation. You can also visit the Ness of Brodgar, where archaeological digs are ongoing.
The Cuween Cairn, on a hillside above Finstown, commands a wonderful view across the Bay of Firth towards the North Isles - it's well worth the effort!
