Overscapa Cottage is a distinctive new 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.

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, museums, and other historic sites. Alternatively browse through the local shops and the bustling old harbour area.

The spacious main livingroom 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.

A real fire, the local flagstone floor warmed by an environmentally friendly heat pump, and traditional features create a special ambiance.
