Accommodation Description

· Kid-friendly · Pets allowed

This ecological and organic farm faces south and east and overlooks sandy bays and sea-cliffs in the Scottish countryside in South Ronaldsay, the Orkney Islands, where there is nothing but nature, peace, space, and sky. Glamping here is an experience unlike any other.

There are two custom-built wooden cabins resembling traditional upturned boat shelters, with a covered deck area and a remarkable view of the beach and cliffs. They are solid and heavily insulated with local sheep fleece, with double glazed doors, power, and heating. Each accommodation is provided with bedding, a water container, a rechargeable lamp, and hot water bottles.

Bicycles and vehicles can be parked discreetly nearby and an outdoor storage box is provided. Inside, a simple platform provides double or single bed options or raised seating. Read More
