In mid winter, the sun sets on the horizon right in front of your window, filling the sky with drama and colour and the spectacle of the aurora borealis at it’s most vivid is an experience not to be missed! With a south westerly aspect, summer at Billia Croo is glorious! Mid summer sees the long sunlit days and warm twilight known as ‘simmer dim’ take up almost 23 hours, and it never gets truly dark!

          A comfortably furnished stone built holiday cottage on the north shore of Scapa Flow, with fine unspoilt views south over the Flow and west to the hills of Hoy. The cottage was converted in 1998 from traditional croft buildings to provide a unique environment for family holidays in one of the Orkney mainlands most popular parishes. The cottage is equidistant from Kirkwall and Stromness and is a mile from the south isles ferry terminal of Houton. With excellent walking country in the Orphir hills, and a short drive to Maeshowe, the Ring of Brodgar and the Standing Stones, the cottage provides a perfect base for exploring the mainland and south isles. The cottage is capable of sleeping up to six people in two spacious double bedrooms and using the double pull-out sofa bed in the living room. All bed linen and towels are provided. Green Tourism In the interests of green tourism, as promoted by Visit Scotland's Green Tourism Business Scheme, we are keen to make our contribution to environmental conservation. Visitors will notice the small (6 kW) pole mounted wind generator on land well to the back of the cottage which feeds electricity by underground cable to heat and light the cottage. This supplements the mains supply and allows surplus electricity to be fed back into the grid. With the same interest of reducing the carbon footprint of the cottage, the insulation in the loft spaces was recently increased, making the cottage feel warmer and more comfortable, as well as saving energy. Also, a solid fuel stove is provided in the sitting room and all lights are fitted with low energy bulbs. Facilities are provided for collection and recycling of waste. These measures complement the superb natural surroundings of the cottage which provide a habitat for many species of birds, including oyster catchers, curlews, lapwings and the rather rare short eared owl, as well as an abundance of hares. Otters have been seen down on the sea shore below the cottage. The cottage is situated on the north shore of Scapa Flow in open farmland and about 500 yds from the sea shore. There is a coastal walk along the cliff top to the Orkneyinga Saga Visitor Centre in the one direction and to the open sands of Swanbister Bay in the other. There is extensive walking in the Orphir hills at the back of the cottage. Within Orphir Village there is a post office and a pub serving food most evenings of the week. For food shopping it will be necessary to drive the 10 miles to Kirkwall, where there is a selection of supermarkets and other food shops, or to Stromness.

              Set in a peaceful coastal location with stunning sea views, this is the perfect place to truly relax! Enjoying privacy and an elevated position along the South West coast of the mainland, Billia Croo provides some of the most beautiful sea views Orkney has to offer. It is a tranquil retreat in the much sought after 'Outertown' area of Stromness, Orkney's main ferry port, which is just a few minutes drive away, although it has a rural feel, surrounded by coast, cliffs and farm land. The spacious house has three bedrooms: First floor - king/family option with ensuite shower room. Ground floor - king/twin option and double with modern bathroom/shower between. There is plentiful hot water and all towels and bedding are provided. With a stunning panoramic view the sitting room is to the front of the house and kitchen diner to the rear, with back door opening onto a sheltered patio area, a wonderful spot to have a coffee in the morning sunshine, with views of Graemsay and Hoy sound beyond. A separate laundry includes washing machine, tumble drier and a double belfast sink with pulley above - perfect for drying wetsuits and other large items. The large first floor room offers a kingsize bed and a modern en suite shower room. An extra single can be added to make a cozy family room with generous built in storage. From here you have a lovely view south over Hoy Sound and Scapa Flow. The ground floor bedrooms can accomodate 4 - 5 people, comprising a double with sea view and twin or king with option of a third single to make a family or triple room. These share a modern family bathroom with shower over the bath. The quality of light here will entrance you no matter what time of year you decide to come. In mid winter, the sun sets on the horizon right in front of your sitting room window, filling the sky with drama and colour and the spectacle of the aurora borealis at its most vivid is an experience not to be missed! With a southerly aspect, summer at Billia Croo is glorious! Mid summer sees the long sunlit days and warm twilight known as 'simmer dim' take up almost 23 hours and it never gets truly dark. The brilliant blue sea and huge nightless skies seem never ending, it has a magical quality which words can't describe. We enjoy a surprising number of mild weather days throughout the year in Orkney due to the effect of the gulf stream and although the winter can be wild with passing squalls and sometimes storm force gales, it is wonderfully exhilarating and dramatic. Going west from the house along the coast road, you quickly reach the popular West Coast Walk. Climbing up onto the high cliffs of the Black Craig, the stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean as far as the eye can see will take your breath away. It is an invigorating way to begin your holiday especially on a windy day! The cliff path will take you to Yesnaby and Skaill Bay where you'll find the famous neolithic village of Skara Brae, part of the 'Heart of Neolithic Orkney', a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Further inland, the site also includes Maeshowe burial chamber, The Standing Stones of Stenness and The Ring of Brodgar. It is too far to cover all of these ancient historic sites by foot in a day – although it is possible by mountain bike! If you'd prefer the relaxed option though, they are all within a ten minute drive of Stromness. In addition to three supermarkets, there is an impressive range of Orkney produce available to you here and Orkney meat is widely regarded as the best in the country. For dining out, there is an award winning restaurant 'The Hamnavoe' who also do a takeaway delivery service at weekends. There are three bar restaurants and two cafes in Stromness and plenty of other choice options throughout the mainland. There is also a chip shop in Stromness which serves up fresh Westray Haddock! We are proud to provide a luxury experience at reasonable rates and look forward to welcoming you to Billia Coo! Long lets are available. For stays over one month and long winter lets rates are negotiable. Billia Croo is located on the first stretch of the mainland you will see as the ferry comes round past the Old Man of Hoy into the historic town of Stromness. It s a designated area of natural beaty, with many coastal walks and beautiful scenery. A warm and comfortable private space with a view, make yourselves at home and relax in the peace and quiet!

The underlying sandstone rock breaks-down easily to form good fertile soils and much of the landscape is farmed, growing mainly grass for animal feed. Most of the farmland is devoted to the production of beef cattle and Orkney beef is prized for its high quality. Sheep are also present in high numbers and the production of barley, potatoes (tatties) and turnips (neeps) is also common. The island of Hoy (meaning high in Old Norse) is the exception with dramatic hills and valleys and spectacular cliffs.

                        The stone cottage has a long and fascinating history, dating back to the 18th century, when it was a boat builder's house. Recently restored and modernised to a high standard, the cottage is located right in the heart of the Stromness conservation area, a short walk from shops (including bakery, delicatessen, restaurants, pubs and other amenities). Stromness is one of the main gateways into Orkney, located in the west of the islands. The first settlement here dates back to the Vikings, who identified the bay of Hamnavoe as a sheltered harbour. The town has a long and rich maritime history, and hosts several events during the year including the Orkney Folk Festival in May, the St Magnus International Festival in June and Stromness Shopping Week in July, a community gala celebrating all aspects of local life. The property lies in the heart of the town, walking distance from the ferry terminal (10 minutes) and close to shops and other amenities. If you are travelling by car, there is free on-street parking. With its cobbled streets winding around the shore and up the steep hill, Stromness is a delightful place to explore on foot. The narrow closes off the main street offer glimpses of the water between buildings, and as you climb the hill a magnificent vista opens up, looking out across Scapa Flow to the dramatic hills of North Hoy. If you're looking for outdoor activities, there are plenty of options close by. Boats offer sea angling trips from the harbour, and there is excellent trout fishing nearby (the West Mainland has some of the best brown trout lochs in the country). Stromness is the main centre for scuba diving in Orkney, with a number of boats offering diving off the military wrecks in Scapa Flow. The Stromness Golf Course welcomes visitors and organises a midnight tournament at the height of summer. There is also excellent walking, birdwatching and sailing - boats can be hired from the marina. There are plenty of indoor attractions too, including the Stromness Museum, with local history and natural heritage displays, Pool & Leisure Centre, the Pier Arts Centre, and lots of small galleries and craft shops to browse. A compact, cosy town centre property providing self-catering accommodation for 4-6 people. The cottage is simply and tastefully decorated, with a nautical theme. Stromness has a unique, village atmosphere, old-world charm and a beautiful shoreline setting.

Guest AccessWe encourage guests to treat our home as their home while they are with us. If you want to come and sit with us you will be made very welcome but you can also use our guest lounge and library in which you will find a good selection of books on Orkney and by Orcadian authors. Interaction with GuestsWe understand that our guests have different needs. If you need information on Orkney then Ray will happily sit and chat for hours with you to help you plan your visits and if you want to see or do something specific then we can hopefully help and if not we can suggest who to contact. The NeighborhoodOrkney is a wonderful place to visit - we are close to the main neolithic historic sites of Maeshowe, Stones of Stenness, Ness and Ring of Brodgar and Skara Brae along with a host of tombs and brochs all open to the public and most with free access. The Viking heritage is well displayed in Birsay, Orphir and Kirkwall (the magnificant St Magnus cathedral) - all a few minutes drive away. The wartime history is on diplay in Lyness, Stromness and can be seen in several other places. For those interested in scenery we have everything from mountains and moorland to cliffs and beaches. Birdwatchers are well catered for in Orkney with several RSPB owned reserves and purpose built 'hides' around the county. There are several hotels with restaurants within 4 miles and more, along with pubs, retaurants and cafes in Stromness and Kirkwall. If you want to go out and enjoy a drink with your meal we will if we can, run you there and back. There are several music festivals throughout the year, live music in pubs and bars especially at weekends, museums, art galleries and a host of other cultural activities. Getting AroundWe are out in the country and unfortunately Orkney, other than between Stromness and Kirkwall, is not well served by a frequent bus service. Car hire is available from several local companies and garages but we are not served directly by the national agencies. If you are flying in then you can book a car for collection at the airport. Those coming by ferry for a day or two may find it cheaper to hire a car locally rather than pay for one on the ferry. Other Things to NoteThe room is on the first floor accessed by stairs. The price is for the room and breakfast, based on two people sharing.

                        Stenigar is located on the edge of the small town of Stromness. The house enjoys panoramic views and is one of the best locations available with the beach on 2 sides, the Hoy hills, the golf course behind the house and the heart of the town a few min

                        The SpaceWe have two rooms available (not ensuite). The photos currently show single beds in each room. One room is now set up as a double, with a proper 5 foot (1.5m) wide mattress on a low wooden base. The other room has a normal single bed. For a family booking, we can supply a further (proper, 900 wide) mattress on the floor in either room if required. These two rooms can both be used by a family or friends in one party. The rates shown are for one person or two people in one room: if a party of two people wish to have one room each, we will charge the single room rate for each room. For one party of three people, we will charge for one room at double usage, plus one single room (or just a further extra person rate if all three are in the one room). For one party of four people, we will charge the double room rate for each room. These additional costs are payable once here. (This approach is because we do not normally wish to host two separate bookings at the same time, so have not put the second room as a separate listing on the site.) Please get in touch if confused by all this! The house is modern, spacious and warm, with views across the harbour and surrounding gardens. It also has its own secluded garden you are welcome to use. Guest AccessUse of the house (including bathrooms) shared with the family. Use of the fully-equipped kitchen and laundry facilities by agreement. Continental breakfast included - let us know in advance if you have specific dietary requirements and we'll do our best to meet these. Informal evening meal (generally vegetarian or fish) with the family may be available on request. We also have lots of books, DVDs, music CDs and board games, which you are welcome to enjoy whilst you are with us. Interaction with GuestsAs much as you wish and that fits in with busy family life. The NeighborhoodStromness is a historic town with a surprising range of shops and facilities, including the excellent Pier Arts Centre ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), not Sunday), Stromness Muse(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) in summer, daily), swimming and sports facilities, unique craft shops, and wonderful coastal and countryside walks. Everything you'll need is available within easy walking distance, including a co-op supermarket (open (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) daily), pharmacy, bakery/general store, post office and bookshop. Our house is 70m from the main street, at the top of a quiet pedestrian close. Meals are available at three hotels and good restaurants within 300m: evening serving times are typically (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). Getting AroundWe are within 500m of the Northlink ferry to mainland Scotland, the foot ferry to Hoy, and hourly bus service to Kirkwall and St Margarets Hope (for Pentland Ferries). There is a late-night bus to the Northlink ferry to Aberdeen and Shetland. We are 30km (18 miles) from Kirkwall airport. Car hire, bike hire and taxis are available in Stromness. This all makes Stromness an ideal base from which to explore the whole of Orkney and everything it has to offer. See Visit Orkney and Stromness Orkney websites. Other Things to NoteOur last check-in time is normally 2130: if you plan to travel to Orkney on the ferry from either Aberdeen or Lerwick (Shetland), and wish to stay with us on that same night, please tell us prior to making your reservation, as the arrival time to Orkney may be too late to fit in with our family arrangements. All other ferry and flight schedules allow you to arrive at us well before 2130. Our house is not really suited for those with limited mobility, as there are many steps and (when wet) slippery paths in the surrounding area (and stairs in the house). There is no direct road access to the house. Free car parking is available about 100m away, with a quite steep pedestrian lane to the house. The house is not suited for young children (no stairgates). Whilst the minimum stay is one night, we have frequently been told by our guests that that is just not enough time to experience what Orkney has to offer: we suggest you consider spending longer than that in Orkney.
