It is the perfect location to get away from the stresses of work, the busy city life or just to relax in peace and quiet. It is situated on a hill and so has beautiful panoramic views over the surrounding farmland and Orkney landscape.

From Newbigging Orkney self catering accommodation you have breathtaking views of the Hoy Hills in the south, the lochs of Stenness and Harray to the southeast and views over the parishes of Sandwick, Harray and Birsay, giving a fantastic feel of Orkney.


You will be greeted by birdsong and the contented grazing of the farm animals in the surrounding fields each day and perhaps see a tractor working in the distance.

Rabbits, hares, larks, wrens, starlings, black birds, swallows, geese, the occasional hen harrier and heron are your nearest neighbours!


The cottage is beautifully and tastefully decorated. Each room has been inspired by the colours and textures of an Orkney summer. The sea pinks, heathers and myriad of wild grasses and the pinks, reds of the sunsets glistening over the surrounding lochs.

This is all contrasted by the grey tones of the Orkney slate giving a true taste of Orkney. Comfort and convenience in a home from home in a stunning setting.

Thank you, David and Kay, for our wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage!  A home from home.  Walking, fishing and eating – what more could we want.  What’s more Howard popped the big question…..I said yes!!  Thank you Orkney for a very memorable holiday.
