Overscapa Cottage is a distinctive cottage full of traditional character overlooking Scapa Flow. Ideally situated in a rural countryside location with beautiful panoramic views, yet only 1 mile from Kirkwall.
The cottage has been thoughtfully designed to provide the option of two to four bedrooms, so whether you are a family seeking spacious accommodation, or holidaying with friends, 4 to 8 people can be comfortably accommodated.
Weekly rates start from £500 per week and short breaks are available Sept – Mar.
The spacious main living room is at the heart of the cottage with doors to private patio area where you can relax after a days exploring and watch the sun set over Wideford hill. The generous fully fitted kitchen/dining area allows up to eight people to dine in comfort whilst enjoying the views over Scapa Flow. A real fire, the local flagstone floor warmed by an environmentally friendly heat pump, and traditional features create a special ambience.
An attractive design feature is the layout of the four bedrooms. Two bedroom areas, each with double and twin bedroom adjacent to a bathroom/shower room, makes the cottage ideal for the extended family or if you are holidaying with friends. The cottage is fully equipped with Broadband Wi-Fi, Freeview TV, DVD and Hi Fi with iPod dock. An Orkney welcome pack awaits you on your arrival.
Simply enjoy relaxing at the cottage or take a leisurely walk along the nearby sandy beach to the pier, or the scenic cliff top walk to the famous Scapa Distillery. Study the birdlife, seals and maybe even spot an otter on the way. In the evening stroll into Kirkwall to dine and sample the local fare, or enjoy some traditional music.
The central location of the cottage is ideal for most things available in Orkney whether your interest is walking, cycling, touring, fishing or golf. In Kirkwall visit the St Magnus Cathedral (St Magnus Cathedral tour times ), museums, and other historic sites. Alternatively browse through the local shops and the bustling old harbour area. Explore one of the North Isles with a day trip.
