Superb self-catering accommodation in Neolithic Orkney in an area of National Scenic Beauty

Raingoose is a beautifully designed house with traditional Orkney stone frontage and Welsh slate roof. It commands stunning, uninterrupted views over the Bay of Ireland to the Hoy Hills, arguably one of the best vistas in Orkney. Set in its own large garden, 200 metres from the Bay of Ireland, with excellent secluded shoreline, Raingoose has access to our adjacent fields and a path to the secluded shore. Free wifi.

Sleeping up to six people, it offers modern amenities in excellent accommodation. Luxuriate in the sitting room, view the incredible skies and beautiful scenery through the picture window or watch the seals resting on the shore and birds wheeling. Be snug with its multi-fuel stove and central heating. Relax in the well-appointed kitchen and dining area, which offer the same stunning views. It is an ideal place to relax and a great base to explore the nearby famous archaeological sites, walk, cycle, play golf, photograph and paint or just potter in Stromness or Kirkwall.
