Portsmouth Point built in the early 1800's provides comfortable and attractive accommodation, ideal for a couple or a single person. The sea is only a few yards away and the bedroom has lovely sea views across to Graemsay.
The cottage is in the heart of Stromness situated on one of the old piers, and is only a two minutes walk from the ferry terminal. The pubs, restaurants, museum and bakery are even closer by. The cottage is also only minutes from the main harbour and the many dive charter boats that operate in Scapa Flow.
This small fisherman's cottage, a one up one down arrangement has been sympathetically refurbished and it still retains it's original character. The cottage is heated by storage heaters and electric radiators, and the cost of electricity is included in the rental.
The toilet is on the ground floor just off the entrance hall whilst the upper floor bedroom has an ensuite shower room and a walk in wardrobe area with ample storage. In the downstairs galley kitchen area there is a washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave, fridge and a small cooker.
The sitting and dining area has a TV with a two seater settee and dining table. The bedroom has views across to the light house on Graemsay and provides a great location for watching the boats coming in and out of the harbour.
For warmer days folding chairs are provided so you can sit outside and enjoy the view across to the lifeboat pier and the harbour which is only a few feet away at the end of the close. Portsmouth Point is available to rent all year round with lets normally running from Saturday to Saturday. The weekly rate is £300 which includes bed linen and towels.
Getting there by ferry:- The ferry from Scrabster takes you right into Stromness. When leaving the ferry terminal turn left along the harbour road. At the Stromness Hotel continue into Victoria Street. The cottage is 200 yards further on just past The Royal Hotel on the opposite side, down the close at the side of Merrimans electrical shop.
