The Dale of Cottiscarth is famous for its Hen Harrier population which has been the subject of a fifty year project. Set in the valley of Settiscarth, our holiday home looks right across a favourite hunting spot for the bird and you can watch them in action from your living room window.
The cottages are also part of an organic farm and visitors are welcome to come along and see the cattle and sheep grazing.
If you are looking for a peaceful holiday home but with easy access to the Heart of Neolithic Orkney and all its treasures, then Cottiscarth Cottages is the perfect destination.Find out more about our cottages
Covid-19 update. We are preparing to reopen when the Scottish Government relaxes the lockdown measures. We already have high occupancy levels until the end of August, as we are restricting bookings to allow us more time to make sure the cottages are deep cleaned in between guests. If you have any specific questions regarding bookings please contact us by phone on the numbers on this site. We are receiving quite a lot of bookings for 2021, so if you are planning to visit us, then it would be a good idea to book as soon as you can to make sure you get the dates you want. Due to the social distancing measures we are not providing any tours until further notice.
