Swanbister House, Swanbister, Orphir, Orkney, KW17 2RB

    The bothy nestles on Swanbister farm, in the parish of Orphir, overlooking the expanse of Scapa Flow; in the distance the Hoy hills and the South isles give a dramatic frame to the view.

    Only eight miles form either Kirkwall or Stromness, the farm of Swanbister is half a mile from the A964. With the South Isles ferry terminal at Houton only a few minutes awy, the bothy is close to the Hobbister RSPB Bird Reserve, the trout fishing on Kirbister loch, Orphir Round Church and the Viking visitor Centre.

    In the village at the top of the road is a children’s play area at the Orphir Community School, while the nearest Pub/Restaurant and Post office is only ¾ of a mile from the farm.
